Mission Statement

The Creative Centre is a non-profit cooperative founded in 2011. We are a group of people who bought a run-down fish factory (2800 m2) situated in the small village of Sto?varfjordur on the East coast of Iceland. We have been renovating it and building up multiple facilities and workshops during the past few years and now we run an artist residency program, an active concert program in our concert hall as well as having fully equipped wood workshop, metal workshop, kitchen, design studios and a professional recording studio in the making. Our aim is to demonstrate how creative endeavors can build up a society in a sustainable way, and to provide a facility for artistic creation in the East.

The Factory is an huge project and even though we have gone a long way there are still many things to do and we can always use an extra hand :)

We are usually seeking helpers for carpentry, construction, plummbing, electricity and masonary work. There is plenty of stuff to do and we need people who can work independently, are good craftspeople and experienced in these kinds of tasks. If you are a "Jack of all Trades" you have found your place in the world because so are we!

We will provide you with housing and in return we ask of you a 6-7 hour work day, 5 days a week.

We are also musically minded people so if you happen to play instruments, our concert hall is fully equipped for jamming fun and experiments.

The current core team of the Factory is Rosa, Una, Vinny, Toggi and Alla.
