Nordic-Baltic AiRFair presents activities of already established residencies as well as offers an opportunity to work on development of concepts for new residencies and to build new networks. During the day you will hear a series of presentations and a panel discussion, mingle and tell about your residency while enjoying a lunch buffet.
