Nes artist residency was founded in the beginning of March 2008 in the town of Skagaströnd and the first artists arrived in June.
As an international artist residency, Nes provides artists with a workspace and living quarters during their stay in Skagaströnd. The town was a trading and fishing town for centuries. With the fishing industry decreasing in the last decade, the former fishing plant at Fjörubraut 8 has now found a new role housing the Nes artist residency studios.
The main goal of the residency is to provide an opportunity for international exchange, where professional artists in all media including writers and performing artists are given the opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and possibly collaborate.
