Are you a photographer, digital artist or filmmaker looking to explore north Iceland for your next project, or a writer or researcher looking for the peace, quiet and solitude that a remote north Iceland town could offer? Nes is now offering short stay residencies to individual artists in the newly renovated Salthús guesthouse perfectly situated overlooking Húnaflói Bay out to the Westfjörds in Skagaströnd.
We are offering double room accommodation on the top floor of Salthús, each room is approximately 20sq metres, with private bathroom, queen-size double bed, casual seating and desk top working space, suitable only for artists who do not require a studio space. The facility also provides shared kitchen access, laundry facilities, wifi and underfloor heating.
Our short stay residencies are separate to our traditional curated residencies and we place no expectation on the artist, but do presume that artists are self motivated and will require little assistance. However, we are happy to offer advice and answer questions whenever possible. Whilst short stay artists will be mainly working on their own, they are still welcome to visit and meet with artists at the Fjörubraut Studio and attend as a visitor to our open studio and artist talk events.
