The SÍM Residency in Reykjavík, is an international residency program for artists with two locations

Description of residency program
The SÍM Residency in Reykjavík, is an international residency program for artists with two locations in Iceland.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
The main objective of the SIM Residency is to function as a direct link between visual artists, both nationally and internationally by bringing them together from different parts of the world to work in close company with each other.
The SIM Residency seeks to promote an environment of reflection, study and play by providing artists with a working environment that supports the artistic process.

Length of Residency
The length of the residency is from one month to three months.

The SIM Residency started in 2002 with a small one bedroom apartment and one studio at SIM Reykjavik.
Since then the residency has gradually grown and we now welcome over 150 artists from all over the world on an annual basis at our three locations, two in Reykjavík and one in Berlin. Artists are accepted based on their work examples, CV and project descriptions. The residency program includes artists’ talks and exhibition at the end of each month. Residencies can last for one to three whole months

Studio/ workspace
The two locations in Reykjavík are at Seljavegur and Korpúlfsstaðir. Both places also host a number of local artists studios. Seljavegur is situated only a 10 min walk from the city centre and Korpúlfsstaðir is situated on the outskirts of Reykjavik in an old dairy farm.

Fees and support
 SÍM does not offer any fee or support for the residency, since SÍM Residency is a non-profit organisation without any operating state grants.
Since 2008 SIM Residency has been in collaboration with Kulturkontakt Nord on the Nordic Baltic mobility program for culture in which artists are invited to stay at the residency with a grant.
There is a fee for staying at the residency which depends on what room and studio artists apply for. The price ranges from 455 - 710 EUR. 

Expectations towards the artist
Each month we offer residents to participate in a group artist talk and a group exhibition at our SIM Gallery. It is not obligatory to participate in these events but it is recommended in order to get as much out of the residency stay as possible.
