2014 Skaftfell Residency Programme

Skaftfell - Center for Visual Art runs a residency programme in Seydisfjordur, East Iceland. The program is aimed at visual artists, but artists working in intermediate fields are eligible to apply regardless of the nature of their primary profession or education within the arts. The Skaftfell residency programme aims to foster a community made up of artists and the general public in the rural setting of East Iceland, invite artists to live and work in a unique micro community where creativity is applied to every day life, create and nurture an inspiring environment, and facilitate circumstances for artists to experience, reflect and explore new angles to their artistic work and provide conditions that stimulate a dialogue between art and life.

Each residency period is from one to six months, however applications for residencies with a duration of more than a month are preferred. The residencies are located in three different houses in the town of Seydisfjordur.

The programme is open for applications for a residency in 2014 with deadline on 1 September 2013.
