Our Centre is a place to meet with other creative people in a warm collaborative community. The staff are at work Monday-Friday from 8:00 – 16:00, while residency artists have 24/7 access to the building. We offer a shared studio space (95 m2). The studio spaces function as a “home base” for the artists and from there they can work on their creative projects in various facilities and workshops. The Centre has wood-, metal-, ceramic- and print workshops as well as a kitchen, small library, and a concert hall. The Creative Centre was established in 2011 in the former fish factory (2800 m2) of Stöðvarfjörður, a village in the East Fjords of Iceland. The Centre is a non-profit, artist-run organization. The team running it is Vincent Wood & Una Sigurðardóttir. Since its establishment, the former fish factory has been transformed into a thriving place of creativity & music. The Centre is a true maker’s haven and offers a wide range of facilities Months: 1 Either September or November
