    Description

    This is a local artist residency with the aim of bringing together artists and the community of Neskaupstaður, East Iceland. Visiting creatives will interact with locals in building a vibrant community that attracts visitors, entrepreneurs, and new people and businesses to the area.

    Artists will share their skills and imagination by creating installations, events and happenings, and facilitating workshops during their stay in Neskaupstaður. We support artist led projects that focus on co-creation, inspiring a sense of sharing and involvement of each project by the community.

    During the residency, artists will experience the culture of rural Iceland in a small town of 1500 people. Living in a beautiful old house in the centre of town, with nature on your doorstep.
