Survival kit

The international contemporary art festival Survival Kit is one of the largest contemporary art events in the Baltics, taking place in Rīga annually. It was started in 2009 as a reaction towards the global economic crisis, calling for a consideration of various survival strategies within the changeable world of today. Every year, the festival is dedicated to a new and significant social topic. Abandoned Riga buildings are often used to hold festival events in order to draw attention to their future potential for development.
