Artists-in-residence are welcome to participate in Skaftfell’s education program by giving an artist talk or a workshop for the local community, by presenting their work in an open studio, or by contributing to the Skaftfell Art Class for children at the local primary school.
Facilities and venues
Skaftfell’s artist residencies are located in three historical houses in the town of Seydisfjörður, all within short walking distance to Skaftfell and to each other.
