The old fish salting house in Skagaströnd is undergoing major renovation, which is near to completion. Nes is now offering year round residencies and short stays to groups with or without studio space. Artist collectives, university groups, writers retreats, art classes, performance teams and other arts organisations that wish to collaborate on projects or work together on common goals/themes can now apply. We are also offering short stay residencies to single independent working artists who are looking for 2 – 4 week stays and require no studio space. We are now taking applications for January – May 2018 and October – December 2018.
Salthús situated high at the edge of the sea features uninterrupted vistas over looking Húnaflói Bay out to the Westfjords.
Renovation is near to completion and the whole building will offer accommodation with 14 double rooms. Nes Listamiðstöð will occupy the top floor with underfloor heating and offer 7 double rooms each with private bathroom plus shared kitchen/laundry facilities to art groups, organisations and single artists.
Each double room is more than 20m2 and will have queen size bed, desk and casual seating area.
These group residencies are for a duration of 2 or 4 weeks and possibly longer by negotiation.
For an extra fee Nes will provide 24/7 access to a studio space in the building next door which is complete with kitchen and bathroom facilities, both the studio and accommodation will have wifi.
For larger groups and with advanced notice we can offer the 14 rooms (both floors) of Salthús.
