Nordic Culture Point  &  SIM Residency

The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture strengthens artistic and cultural cooperation in the Nordic region and Baltic states. The programme focuses on increasing the exchange of knowledge, contacts and interest in Nordic and Baltic art and culture. The Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme comprises three forms of funding: mobility funding, network funding and funding for artist residencies.

SIM Residency and Nordic/Baltic Mobility Programme 2023



SIM Residency invites artists and curators from Nordic/Baltic countries to apply for a one-month granted Artists-in-residence program.  


All seven artists will live and work in the SIM Residency apartment at Korpúlfsstaðir. Residency activities will be focused on research through learning, exchanging, studying, experimenting, traveling, and discovering Icelandic nature, local geological resources, and renewable energies. A guided tour of Iceland's glaciers and ice caves will allow artists to get closer to the fragile Icelandic nature - facing the massive impact of globalization and global warming. Day tours will bring artists to the nearest points where Icelandic landscapes open with their diversity, from the glaciers to the newest volcanic eruptions. Meetings with local scientists and lectures directed to the Icelandic ecosystems and global warming impact on Iceland's nature allows artists to get professional data and knowledge for their art projects. As reflection artists, at the end of the month, will be presenting their art projects to the local community. Studio visits and meetings with cultural representatives, local artists/curators/gallery owners, and scientists will help artists to build new networks and start future collaborations. 11 additional international artists at the same time will participate in a self-directed residency program at Seljavgeur apartment that will keep a close connection with the granted residency program at Korpúlfsstaðir.
