Nes artist residency is not a grants or funding body.

We  have a long standing affiliation with Künstlerhaus Lukas in Ahrenshoop Germany, who will provide 2 funded placements per year at Nes,  more information on these scholarships can be found here.  We reciprocate by selecting 2 Nes artists who live in Iceland per year for a residency at Künstlerhaus Lukas

We recommend checking with your own country’s government bodies, arts councils, or philanthropic funding organizations for project and travel grants.

Below are some grants we know of:



Nordic and Baltic countries
