The two Baltike launch events will take place in New Haven, CT (May 5) and New York City, NY (May 6). The New Haven event will feature film screenings and an art exhibition with an interactive soundscape, photography by Andrius Mamontovas, and paintings by Mykole Ganusauskaitė. There will also be live performances by Yale University students featuring music by Andrius Mamontovas, Rasa Serra, Jurgis Didžiulis, Lauris Reiniks, Ingrid Lukas, Kūjeliai, among others.

The Baltike launch in New York City will be presented by The Kosciuszko Foundation and World Lithuanian Youth Association at the Kosciuszko Foundation House. There will be a walkthrough of the Kosciuszko Gallery and live music by composer Julian Darius Revie. Revie, whose previous composition was performed for Pope Francis and in Carnegie Hall, will be premiering his pieces inspired by Lithuanian folk tunes.

Aistė is an undergraduate student at Yale University and Indrė is a high school student in Florida. Aistė and Indrė will be presenting Baltic Bridge, an online platform recording Lithuania's transition to democracy through video interviews and documentary film clips, at the AABS Conference at the University of Pennsylvania next month.
