Maintenance of outdoor artwork exhibitions and artist workshops

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: CADIP

Take the opportunity to contribute to this special art and culture project in the West of Iceland.

Since 2000, our hosts have been creating and developing an art residency camp, outdoors and indoors art exhibitions and a chapel for all types of religions which are open to the public. The residency grew around an old abandoned farm which has been in the process of transformation for the last 20 years. The residency supports various art and culture activities, especially for young artists, as well as scientific research. Since the start of the project there have been thousands of visitors and the plans exist to expand the residency with several more houses that will be built using stone, turf and driftwood from the region. The art residency is home to the artworks of Páll Guðmundsson, a famous local artist known for his use of stone as an art medium. Páll’s art comes in forms of stone statues, paintings on stone surfaces and even a musical instrument made of stone. His inspiration comes from Icelandic nature and traditional culture.

The volunteers will help with various tasks, such as maintenance work in the artwork garden; some of the group may help with painting the artist's workshop and some work in and around the chapel. Depending on the project's needs we may also help in maintaining a walking path from the sculpture garden towards a small canyon where some outdoor artwork can be found and help with setting up and moving the artwork, taking down old fences, hand-picking trash and generally beautifying the surroundings.

Dates: August 2 - August 14, 2022
