Auglýst eftir umsóknum fyrir gestavinnustofudvöl 2017

Umsóknarfrestur til 1. september 2016.

Gestavinnustofum Skaftfells er ætlað að stuðla að samfélagi listamanna og heimamanna, veita listamönnum rými til vaxtar og sköpunar í litlu samfélagi með óteljandi möguleikum og búa í haginn fyrir skapandi samræður milli listarinnar og hversdagsins.

Gestavinnustofurnar eru fyrst og fremst fyrir myndlistarmenn, en umsóknir frá listamönnum sem vinna á milli miðla eða í faggreinum er tengjast myndlist verða teknar til greina. Umsóknir frá hópum og fjölskyldum eru einnig vel séðar.

Þátttakendur stýra sjálfir sínu sköpunar- eða rannsóknarferli með stuðningi og ráðgjöf frá starfsfólki Skaftfells. Þátttakendum er velkomið að taka þátt í fræðslustarfi Skaftfells, með listamannaspjalli, kynningum eða listsmiðjum fyrir nemendur Seyðisfjarðarskóla eða íbúa.

Dvalartími er frá einum upp í sex mánuði, en mælst er til að listamenn dvelji í um tvo mánuði. Norrænir og Baltneskir listamenn geta sótt um tveggja mánaða gestavinnustofu með styrk. Ítarlegri upplýsingar má lesa, á ensku, hér fyrir neðan.
