In 2015 the work of the artists was organized on the basis of written materials connected with the theme of the residency – Ritual Art – Time and Space. The main purpose of these texts was to present different views on Time and Space in the Bulgarian folklore, religious and esoteric rituals along with theories of Time and Space in the modern physics. Like magicians who choose the proper time and space to perform their rituals, the artists in the residency has created Ritual Art by using the main characteristics of Time and Space.

On 16 January a seminar was held in Nuance Art Gallery on: “Ways of presenting contemporary art through art residencies”. We shared our experience with:

 - making multicultural contemporary art in a small village through an art residency that is based on Bulgarian folklore, history, traditions and culture; 

- including the local community, especially the children, in the process of creating art as active spectators; 

- creating Ritual Art and observing its influence on the society and the world. 

Lecturers in the seminar were Darina Palova and Dimitar Palov – lawyers, artists and organizers of the Old school residency in Gorna Lipnitsa village.
