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 practises 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 650 people and yet manages to support a local art school, an art centre, a theatre, a museum, restaurants/bars, two artist residencies and the Dieter Roth Academy.
We offer residencies of 50 or 80 days accommodating 6 artists at a time. The residency program is self-organised and applications are accepted twice a year.
In addition to our residencies, on occasion we announce additional special initiatives and projects.
