Call for applications – Thematic Residencies 2019 – Skaftfell, Iceland

06.06.18 | Opslagstavle
Deadline: August 15, 2018.

Skaftfell is inviting applications from artists across the world to participate in its Residency Program 2019.

The center offers self-directed residencies and two thematic residencies:
Wanderlust and Printing Matter.

Self-directed Residencies for
individual artists and artistic collaborators

The self-directed residencies offer quiet time and space for independent research, reflection, and experiment. Artists are encouraged to use their stay for in-depth inquiries into their work processes and conceptual interests, to use the magnificent nature of Skaftfell’s surroundings as a source of energy and inspiration, to work at the interface of art and life, to share thoughts with other residency artists, and to embrace the idea of a “slow residency”, embedded in a small but vibrant rural community. The program is best suited for visual artists, but artists with interdisciplinary practices are also welcome to apply.

Duration: 1-4 months within the winter, spring, or autumn term. Residencies start at the beginning of a month and end on the last days of a month. We encourage artists to stay for 2 months or longer, in order to get deeper into place and practice.

  • Winter Term: 2nd January to 28th February 2019
  • Spring Term: 1st April to 31st May 2019
  • Autumn Term: 1st August to 30th November 2019
