Magenta is a unique festival in Lithuania.This extremely successful project of the Kaunas 2022 programme has been exploring the subject of urban nature for three years. Audiences will be able to view installations, landscape objects, urban art and other works of art created by international teams of artists, architects, and landscape designers from Lithuania and other countries. These are all works especially created for an urban context.

With its expansive green spaces and many bodies of water, Kaunas is perfectly suited for the creation of examples of urban and natural harmony. The festival’s events will span a broad spectrum, including education programmes for city residents, public discussions, tours, interdisciplinary projects, events, tactical urbanism, and the creation of public spaces and landscape design sites.

Is it a city within nature, or nature within a city? Let’s find the answer together.
