the ÁGÚST RESIDENCY is an international residency program created and run by the Icelandic artist Hallveig Ágústsdóttir

each summer, in the month of august she will spend about a week together with the small group of participants in her family's summerhouse in Borgarfjörður, which is located on the west coast of Iceland, about an hour and a half drive from Reykjavík

Hallveig wants to create an intimate project for artists, poets, writers and composers by giving participants the opportunity to spend peaceful, creative days together with her in the summerhouse her father built when she was a child

in addition to spending time in the quiet setting of the summerhouse, Hallveig will also invite the participants to join her on short outings and predetermined walking routes to explore and enjoy the nature in Borgarfjörður and its neighboring surroundings

at the end of each residency participants are asked to contribute, in their own way - a visual material - to the yearly ‘ÁR' publication that will follow
