Are you looking for a remote residency located in a unique, stunning, Iceland environment to focus on your art practice with like minded people?
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. 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. Yes it is cold outdoors and yes we have blizzards and mega snow at times but the studio and houses are all geothermally heated and very cosy for working well into the night.
NES is a multidisciplinary residency. We accept applicants from all creative fields and career stages. Additionally, We offer a writer-in-residence program in collaboration with the University of Iceland; likewise, we are able to coordinate access to additional facilities for dancers, composers, musicians, filmmakers and researchers, or anyone who might require additional space to work.
We have some placements available for November 2019 – February 2020 from 650€ per month, this includes accommodation for a single artist, plus a work space in our open plan shared studio, or for writer and researchers 24/7 access to a cosy research library.
