Saga Artist Residency (2015, 2016, 2018)
Saga Artist Residency is a 10-day experience that takes place in the small fishing village of Eyrarbakki in southern Iceland. The residency brings international artists together to collaborate with the local community on different themes. Residents have collaborated with diverse groups (local youth and artists) and spaces (abandoned fish storage units and Litla-Hraun, the largest prison in Iceland). Together with the local community, they’ve explored topics like eliminating single-use plastics, boyhood, embracing our weirdness, fighting polarization and loneliness, and regional ghost stories.
