Throughout the years, Kaunas Artists’ House has gone through many transformations and has established itself as one of the longest-standing artistic venues in the city of Kaunas. Based in V. Putvinskio street that once was the diplomatic centre of Kaunas and now attracts both local and international visitors with its unique modernist architectural heritage, KAH hosts a wide array of performances, concerts, poetry readings, workshops and artists’ residencies.
The diverse programming, reflecting both established acts and artists, and those who are at the beginning of their careers, showcases KAH’s goal to present a high quality programme to its visitors. Fundamentally, KAH, as an institution funded by Kaunas city Municipal Budget Office, operates as a mediator between artists and their audiences as well as cultural institutions and their visitors.
A visit to KAH is also a visit to its unique building: the building which houses KAH was built in 1930, following the project by Vytautas Landsbergis-Žemkalnis, one of the most famous Lithuanian modernist architects. At that time the architectural style of the building was a new development in Lithuanian architecture. The house was built for the Diplomatic Mission of Vatican, although, for unknown reasons, the diplomatic mission of the Holy See never established itself there.
Disability Friendly. The main entrance unfortunately does not feature a step free access. KAH team are currently learning the Lithuanian Sign Language.
