Nordic Winter Nights - a Residency stay in the East of Iceland

After a summer of constant daylight we are now welcoming the deep blue night sky, winter is coming:)

The Creative Centre was established in 2011 when a group of people acquired the abandoned Fish Factory (2800 m2) of the village, with the aim of transforming it into a thriving place of creativity, music and craftmanship. This is an ongoing collaborative and community project and our actions and aims are based on sustainable principles and alternative methods.

The Centre is located in Stöðvarfjörður, a remote village in the East fjords of Iceland, approximately 650 km from Reykjavík. The Team running the Centre is Rósa (Ceramic Artist), Una (Artist & Jack of all trades) and Vinny (Musician, Engineer and Tech-head).

The Residency is multi-disciplinary and open for most creative directions. The purpose of the program is to provide emerging and established artists, creatives, designers and progressive thinkers a port for free expression. We offer access to a range of studios and work facilities, and a place to meet with other creative people in a small collaborative community.

Our Residency Artists stay together in a big house with a large grown garden in the heart of our small village. The house has 5 spacious bedrooms, large kitchen, a bathroom with bathtub, a washroom and internet access. Bed linen is provided. Each artist has their own private bedroom and shares the kitchen and bathroom with the other artists.

We offer shared studio space (50 m2) for 2 -3 Artists and one private studio (18.5 m2). The Centre has fully equipped wood & metal workshops, kitchen, small library, sewing workshop and a Concert hall. All of which the artists have access to along with our paint & material storage in consultation with a team member.

We offer a Shared Studio for 600 Euros and a Private Studio 700 Euros, with everything above included. Residency fee must be paid at least one month before arrival.
