Skaftfell, based in Seydisfjordur East Iceland, is a visual art center with the essential role of presenting, discoursing and encouraging the development of contemporary art. It is a meeting point for artists and locals and its activities are based upon exhibitions and events, alongside an international residency program and outreach program. Skaftfell is also the guardian of a minuscule house previously owned by a local nave artist Asgeir Emilsson (1931-1999). In March 2013 Skaftfell received an Icelandic award, Eyrarrsin, for outstanding cultural leadership in a rural area.
