The ninth iteration of Survival Kit is still ongoing. The festival, organized by the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art, was born in 2009 as a reaction to the austerity caused by the economic crisis and has since continued to invite people to respond to changes taking place in the modern-day world and to reflect on various 'survival' strategies.
This year the festival has the bizarre title: “Becoming an Apricot * an Apple * a Crow * a Tree * a Cockroach * a Glacier * a Plant * a Mushroom * a Shell * a Bird * Algae ”, and will be directed towards the broadening of perceptions of and learning from nature.
