Established in 2009, International Contemporary Art Festival Survival Kit is one of the biggest contemporary art event in the Baltics, attracting more than 10 000 visitors every year. It arose in reaction to the economic crisis in Latvia with the aim of calling on society to respond to changes in the contemporary world and consider various survival strategies. Each year, a socially relevant and important theme is selected for the festival. Empty buildings in Riga are used as festival venues, bringing our attention to their potential future development.
