A residency during the colder months is a great way to experience Iceland in all its winter glory. There is significant and underestimated beauty in the north at this time of the year. The winter months in Iceland are very conducive to creativity and focussed work. The extended time indoors nurtures the development of collaboration and deep friendships between resident artists. Whilst the days are short the light is beautiful and forever changing.

Whilst the days are short, the light is beautiful and forever changing. Yes, it is cold outdoors, but the studio and houses are all geothermally heated and very cosy for working well into the night.
