With dead bodies turning up on a regular basis, and the threat of violence ever looming, it would be hard to believe that anyone would choose to live there. However, a small group of artists, who have been inspired by these unique surroundings have set up an arts institute that aims to help the people of Karosta, whilst using their experiences there as inspiration.
