Akee is a community initiative that is being developed in the Aleknaičiai village, in the Pakruojis district, on the site of a former school built in the late 1930s. Its goal is to enrich the discourse on Lithuanian and international culture related to non-urban areas and to create opportunities for cultural producers and researchers to implement socially responsible and site sensitive projects in non-urban areas. This initiative also aims to increase access to culture products in the Šiauliai region.
Currently, Akee’s main activities include educational programs, the production of culture, and an artists residency program.
Akee’s activities are supported by The Lithuanian Council for Culture and the Pakruojis district municipality.
