About Listhús ses.
Listhús SES. is a non-profit organization, running by a comprehensive team and is not backed by any public institution and so far, only gets public funding project by project. After running a few years, we gain the trust as a working partner with local education institutions.
Our activities are financed by the residency fee. There is no paid staff for daily operation at the moment. In spite of this, we try to keep the residency fees as low as possible, as we are aware that the traveling and living costs in Iceland constitute an obstacle for many artists.
Our goals and visions:
2008: Listhús í Fjallabyggðis founded by Mr. Svavar Gudni Gunnarsson (1931-2013).
2012: Listhus Residency program starts
2014: Listhús ses. (non-profit organization) is formed to take over the management board.
