North Iceland Artist Residency for creative practitioner in 2018

immersive in a fish village of north Iceland and inspiration by the nature time over time.

Listhús Artist Residency Program was established in 2012. It is a self-directed program for creatives  who are inspired by raw landscape and enjoy quiet surroundings. The home-like setting gives residency artists a warm and intimate feeling.  We can host 8-12 artists at a time, within 2 separate residency houses located in close proximity to one another. The program provides an excellent opportunity for international exchange and collaboration.
