Iceland Winter Short Stay Residency

Are you looking for a winter wonderland residency to experience Iceland in all its winter glory?

Are you looking for a winter wonderland residency to experience Iceland in all its winter glory. There is significant and underestimated beauty in the north at this time of the year.  Whilst the days are short the light is beautiful and forever changing.  The northern lights dance regularly across the sky at this time of the year and are a common site in our little north Iceland town of Skagaströnd.

Description of residency program
The old fish salting house in Skagaströnd has undergone major renovation and Nes now can offer shorter residencies to single artists who are looking for 2 - 4 week stays and require no studio space.   This accommodation is suitable for digital artists, photographers, writers etc, those who do not require more than desktop work space.

Duration of residency
2-4 weeks

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Whilst  short stay artists do not have a studio work space and will be mainly working on their own, they are still welcome to access communal areas of the Fjörubraut Studio to mingle and meet with other artists and participate in our open studio, artist talks and potluck events if they coincide with your dates of stay. 

Accommodation 
Salthús situated high at the edge of the sea features uninterrupted vistas over looking Húnaflói Bay out to the Westfjords.  Salthús  offers double size rooms each with own private bathroom plus shared kitchen/laundry facilities, underfloor heating and free wifi.    Each double room is around 20m2 and has queen size bed, desk and casual seating with all linen supplied.  

Studio/workspace
No studio workspace provided 

Fees and support

Expectations towards the artist
Artists are expected to be self directed and fairly autonomous whilst here, however the onsite director is available to answer all queries, offer advice and facilitate introductions to assist you in achieving your goals. Application process is minimal and all we need is the online form submitted - our main requirement is that your art practice suits the space we are offering and therefore do not have a formal selection process for short stays.
