Seydisfjordur: Artist-in-Residence

Who: Visual artists from Germany

Section: Visual Arts

Duration: 6 – 8 weeks

Since 2014, the Goethe-Institut Dänemark supports a residence stay for visual artists in collaboration with the Skaftfell Center for Visual Art in Seyðisfjörður in East Iceland.

The aim of Skaftfell´s residency program 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 setting of rural 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 within an interdisciplinary practice are eligible to apply regardless of the nature of their primary profession or arts education.
