Open call for the Skaftfell Residency Program 2015


The Residency Program is now open for applications for 2015 


The aim of the residency program at Skaftfell is manifold: to create and nurture an environment for inspiration; to encourage artists to experience life and work in a unique micro community where creativity is applied to the everyday; to foster a sense of community between artists and the public in the rural setting of East-Iceland; to facilitate circumstances for artists to experience, reflect and explore new means of their practice and to provide conditions that stimulate the dialogue between art and life.

The program is aimed at professional visual artists but those working across fields or with in an interdisciplinary practice are eligible to apply regardless of the nature of their primary profession or arts education.

The duration of the Standard Residency period is from 1 – 6 months, but applications for a residency period of more than 1 month are given preference. Skaftfell also offers a short term Research Residency option.

The call for applications is open every year from June to 1st September. A link to the application form is available on the webpage during the open call. See more at:
