Our Artist in Residency for the month of May is from Romania and her name is: Adelina Ivan. We welcome her and hope she will enjoy her stay in Grundarfjörður. She will exhibit her artwork in the end of the month and we will post updates on her exhibition here on FB later on.
Her participation in the residency is in collaboration with our partner ARAC (Romanian Contemporary Art Association) from Roumania, part of ARAC ART & RESIDENCY project.
For the next two years ARTAK350 residency will carry out, in partnership with Anca Poterasu Gallery and ARAC, a large-scale project that aims to expand the local contemporary art scene, through a series of cultural events and artistic residencies.
The main topics of discussion set for the project: climate change, economic and war migration, new technologies, the gallery, and ARAC aims to develop a dialogue about social developments and their perception at the global level.
This project is financed with the support of EEA Grants 2014 – 2021 within the RO-CULTURE Program.
The EEA Grants represent the contribution of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway towards a green, competitive and inclusive Europe. There are two overall objectives: reduction of economic and social disparities in Europe, and to strengthen bilateral relations between the donor countries and 15 EU countries in Central and Southern Europe and the Baltics.
The three donor countries cooperate closely with the EU through the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). The donors have provided €3.3 billion through consecutive grant schemes between 1994 and 2014. For the period 2014-2021, the EEA Grants amount to €1.55 billion.

RO-CULTURE is implemented in Romania by the Ministry of Culture through the Project Management Unit. The Programme aims at strengthening social and economic development through cultural cooperation, cultural entrepreneurship and cultural heritage management. The total budget amounts to 34 million EUR. More details are available on www.ro-cultura.ro
