Over the past years Skaftfell has participated in various research projects, collaborating with a number of local and international individuals and institutions. These projects have been supported by, for example, The European Commission, EEA Grants, Nordic Culture Point, Nordic Culture Fund, and Koone Foundation.
To be involved in such international collaborations is important for Skaftfell’s work in the sense that the research activities refresh, challenge, energize and refine Skaftfell’s own activities. The outcomes of the projects range from exhibitions to art commissions, residency exchanges, publications, education programmes and more.
