Gullkistan, Creativity Center • Laugardalur valley, Iceland • gullkistan.is
Gullkistan is a well-equipped residency in a beautiful setting, perfect for artists and scholars with an ambition to work, create and be inspired by the South Icelandic country side.
“The main objective of Gullkistan is to provide a home and workspace for creative people of all professions in an international community in the sublime surroundings of south Iceland where they can work on their ideas and become a part of Icelandic culture locally and in a wider spectrum as each one of them prefers. Residents are encouraged to take part in mutual activities such as meals, travel, exhibitions and open studio events. Gullkistan seeks to promote an environment where people are surrounded with nature, and where residents have the possibility to be a part of that society by having exhibitions and to take the opportunities given to take part in local community activities on different occasions. Gullkistan expects residents to take good care of nature by preserving energy and sort waste. Gullkistan, just as the Icelandic culture, is open for all creative people, of any origin, gender and age. Gullkistan reaches out to children and young people in the community by providing opportunities for them to meet with the residents and learn about their background and their ideas and work and for residents to get to know them and their daily life.”
