Nes artist residency is an international residency located in Skagaströnd in the Northwestern region of Iceland. The residency was formed in March 2008 and opened its doors to the first artists in June of that year.  Nes has been expanding and we can now accommodate about 15 artists and their families each month.

As of 2009 there is ongoing all year “Open call” for applications for Nes artist residency and we welcome last minute applications. There are still openings at Nes in the spring of this year from March onwards.

Nes artist residency welcomes both Icelandic and international artists and designers of all media to Skagaströnd for residencies lasting one to six months. Nes seeks to promote an atmosphere of creativity, experimentation, reflection and play that artists need, by providing a working environment that supports the artistic process. Skagastönd town provides the facilities for the artists to work and interact. We hope that the natural setting, the harbor and surrounding nature inspires, supports and enhances the creativity of the artists who come to Nes, by providing them with an uninterrupted time for work and exploration.
