Gullkistan

Non-member

The Gullkistan residency was founded in spring 2009 and hosts mostly visual artists as well as writers, musicians, designers, photographers, filmmakers and scientists.

Gullkistan has also been a place for seminars, courses in art, exhibitions of art and open studios.

Location

Laugarvatn: Iceland

The Gullkistan residency is located in Laugarvatn, a small school village 90 km east of Reykjavík. It is in an agricultural area, close to some of the most popular touristic sites of Iceland and close to the highlands. The Laugarvatn valley has deep stillness, the faraway mountains with Hekla in the middle, the mysterious lake, the ever changing steams from the ground, the cuddling mountain, the birch wood, the creeks and fissures, the trout, the special history of the school village and the wonderful people living in the village and surrounding farms.
