There is more to Lithuania than linen and folk crafts. Lithuania: Creative & Contemporary presents contemporary minds, young designers and creative prodigies. Let’s refresh the image of Lithuania via exhibitions, workshops, Pink Soup Party, networking evenings and conference. 10-day project in Japan introduces Lithuanian creative professionals, artists, culture operators to Tokyonites. Theme of 2018 is 100 / 百 / Hyaku Lithuania, serving as a word-play for both the marking of the 100th anniversary of Lithuania’s Restoration, as well as representing the diversity of products and ideas which Lithuanian creative industries provide.
