The Creative Centre is an ongoing collaborative and community project. We want to regenerate and sustain our small village by making it into a possible and desirable place to settle – a place where you can have engaging jobs, enjoy culture, and the influx of new ideas and creative people. With this project we want to demonstrate the possibility of strengthening small, remote communities with creative initiatives and to be a source of inspiration for others alike. We believe that many small pillars and culture are a strong way to ensure the livelihood of a society and the Centre is meant to be a platform offering many different workshops and facilities where small initiatives can thrive. We run an all year around Art Residency for most creative fields and we frequently host cultural events and concerts. Currently, we are starting up workshops and study courses at the Centre. We also host a small fish processing company run by a local family and it is easy to get very fresh fish.
The Creative Centre is located in Stöðvarfjörður, a remote village in the East Fjords of Iceland. It was established in 2011 when a group of people acquired the abandoned Fish Factory of the village. The group funded a non-profit cooperation which owns the building and manages the daily operations and business of the Centre.
