Founded in 1995, the gallery „Galera“ has from the very beginning brought together creators of public non-conformist and alternative art. Galera served as the main foundation for the eventual establishment of the Užupis Art Incubator (UAI) in 2002, UAI was the first art centre of its kind in the Baltics. The aim of the Incubator is to support and coordinate artists’ activities and implement various cultural projects. Today, Užupis Art Incubator is located in a large 1500 m² plus residency that serves as a creative collaborative space where contemporary alternative art is promoted. UAI especially encourages young artists to work and display their art at our centre. Our aim is to revitalize community engagement and artist collaboration.
