  • Descripción


    Welcome to our life. We are a married gay couple Hafsteinn (36 years) and Hakon (33 years). Along with our 2 cats and our dog Hnota we live in East Iceland in a cute fishing village called Neskaupstadur. Hafsteinn is an international artist and Hakon runs a tourism company, as well we are a part of a family farm business. We are starting our long time dream project of making a nonprofit creative initiative to help our town , the project is based on a Queer Artist Residency and a Queer Festival in our small, peaceful town. In 2020 we bought a historic old property to renovate and be the housing for our future residency as well as our home, renovations will finish in march 2021 and we plan to welcome first artist in spring 2021.
    We are looking for like minded, fun, creative people to help us making a creative initiative in a small community and telling the world about it, such as social media, content creation, web design, blogging, taking photos, making events or workshops for the community. Also some help around the house or garden, taking care and prepare for artist staying with us.
    Our preferred applicant can stay +1 month. We look forward to meeting new people and sharing ideas and culture.
