12th International Cast Iron Art Symposium

SERDE Residency Centre in Aizpute, Latvia
July 30 – August 9, 2015

The 12th International Cast Iron Art Symposium is part of the art and ecology events series. Artists are invited to use diverse raw materials and supplies for recycling and creating art works – old out-of-date cast iron radiators will be used during the cast iron art symposium. In the hands of professional artists they will be transformed into amazing masterpieces of art.

The 12th International Cast Iron Art Symposium will be held from July 30 – August 9, 2015 at the Residency and workshop centre SERDE in Aizpute, Latvia. During the symposium we expect the artists to take part in the whole casting process and be able to work independently in the creation of molds. Melting and casting iron will be open to the general public and all interested audiences during the symposium days at SERDE and at night by the Tebra riverside.

Cost of participation: The cost of participation is 400 Euros which includes catering, accommodation costs and materials for up to 20kg object (for bigger objects we offer cast iron for additional price). SERDE provides residents with accommodation (shared room) and working premises.
