ArtsIceland residencies are guided by the overall mission of encouraging and facilitating an open-ended approach to the artistic process and working with artists who are searching to create works which have a significant cultural impact. They offer two residencies with a private room and a private studio for visual artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, musicians and others who may profit from the environment/spaces on offer. In the summer months (May - October) there are three more private rooms with a shared studio available for guest artists. People taking part in the residency program are assisted in familiarising themselves with this unique location, its people and their culture. Within reasonable limits they are also assisted in their research related to the projects they are working on. ArtsIceland collaborates with Outvert Art space and artists in residence can apply to make use of the space, which is located in the same building, for exhibitions or other public events.
Minimum stay is 4 weeks, maximum stay is 12 weeks. Our week starts on a Monday and finishes on a Sunday. Priority will be given to those who apply for longer periods.
Visiting artists are encouraged to take part in artist talks/presentations while at the residency. They also have the opportunity to organise public events and/or exhibitions.
The studios are not equipped with any machinery or specialised equipment. One studio has a very old grand piano.
They offer two residencies with a private room and a private studio for visual artists, writers, designers, filmmakers, musicians and others who may profit from the environment/spaces on offer. Kitchen facilities are shared. During the summer months, they also offer 3 residencies with a private room and shared studio and other facilities in a separate building.
