HEIMA Art Residency

Seyðisfjörður, IS

Heima Art Residency is an independent non-profit organisation founded in 2013. It was initiated to provide a space where emerging artists across a variety of disciplines can live and work in close proximity, sharing energies and ideas. 

The space is a 350 square meters living and studio space. It's located in Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland - a thriving port that is home to just 650 people and yet manages to support an art school, an art centre, a theatre, a museum, restaurants/bars, two artist residencies and the Dieter Roth Academy.

We encourage applications from a wide range of artists of different cultural and geographic backgrounds. We are open for applications for all phases - from initial research to finishing works.

Our intention is to create and facilitate temporary collectives for emerging artists to work and live together. We offer residencies of 50 days or 80 days accomodating 6 artists at a time. 

The program is self-organised and as a young non-profit organisation unfortunately we're currently unable to provide financial assistance for the artists in residents.

The residency fee is 150.000 ISK (approx. 1100 EURO) for 50 days or 250.000 ISK (approx. 1800 EURO) for the 80 days residency. The residency fee is to be paid in advance and is non-refundable. Residents must provide for their own food, travel, and miscellaneous expenses.

Residents will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
