King of the North

Students from 2nd to 7th grade in Seyðisfjörður primary school worked in context with the festivals theme on the east side of Iceland which was Reindeer. They enjoyed a visit from Ólafur Örn Pétursson, an entrepreneur and a farmer at Skálanes farm, who informed the children of his knowledge of reindeers from working partly as a guide for the reindeer hunters. With these insightful informations the children worked under the guidance of Þorkell Helgason, wood shop teacher at the school, and Hanna Christel Sigurkarlsdottir, educational manager at Skaftfell. Their work will be shown at the Bookshop-Projectspace.

The exhibition will also be open the 14th of May from 12.00 to 18.00.
