Snow & Fire Festival, North Iceland
Deadline: 12/12/2019 | Published: 11/11/2019 | Venue: Around the Town | City: Ólafsfjörður | Country: Iceland | Annie Strange
Collaborative open call working throughout February to celebrate the small yet mountainous community energy in Ólafsfjörður - focussing on nature, environment, fire, ice, and welcoming the light back into the mountains as Spring approaches.
This open call is to invite artists to a celebration of the wonderful North of Iceland from the start to the end of February, culminating in a small public festival of installations, performances, and workshops.
We will choose five artists to work with the artists we are inviting and selection will be made based on the quality and intrigue of your art practice or past work, along with how well the work you plan to do engages with the community and/or the environment here in Ólafsfjörður. We are unable to pay artists, but we will give a cosy place to stay and food and refreshments during your stay, for free. That's the 'expenses paid' - all you have to do is pay your flight to Iceland and we will arrange the rest, including transport from Reykjavik if arriving on the right date.
We are looking for artists that work well with other people as we are hoping for collaboration and cross pollenation of ideas and inter-disciplinary work. We will consider all applications on face value, so if you have a solo project, don't be afraid to tell us in the application and we will discuss this with you.
Any questions prior to application can be sent to us via the Contact Curator button and we will do our best to welcome and accomodate your styles and your energy.
As this is the first festival of arts for Kaffi Klara Art Residence, we cannot offer any payment, but we will look after you with our classic Scandi hospitality and give you a space to sleep, share our delicious fresh cooked food, and spend time with other artists and resources here to create lasting networks and collaboartive projects with our open call group and invited artists.
The artists invited wont be shared just yet, but we will be working with fire and movement, light projection, and butoh artists who will be sharing their work and practice through performances, installations, and workshops; so we are especially looking for artists who will work well with these practices.
Let's bring the light back to the snow!
