We recommend residencies of 2 or more months. Longer residencies hold benefits when artists commit to constructing substantial and articulate work and or research, or wish to develop over time a connection to the Icelandic arts or the community.  However we will consider some 1 month residencies. Please note our residencies start on the first week day of the month and end on the last day of your residency month.

Backup residency period *
Only check the number of months which you plan to stay. For example; if you want to stay for three months, here you would select the three months you would attend if your first choice is not available.
How did you hear of us? *
Would you like to be considered as a Mentor for a school student or to provide a class workshop in a primary or secondary school?
We have children usually between 15-17 years old who are interested in learning from artists, this is as a volunteer, on a casual 2 hours per week basis (or more if preferred). It can be discussing ideas or art/ists, teaching, or working on a project together. This is an indication of interest only, and we will see if there is a suitably matched student or class.
