Open call for 2024

"HERE" - Open call for Reykjavik Arts Festival 2024

The Reykjavik Arts Festival invites artists to submit proposals for the 2024 edition of the festival, taking place from 1st to 16th June.

The theme for the 2024 edition of the festival is "HERE", a multi-faceted concept that encourages exploration and expression of the present moment and the zeitgeist. We encourage submissions that delve into the relationship between human beings and nature, the significance of place, roots, and language.

All artists are welcome to submit proposals for the festival and we will consider work of any scale. Please note however that large scale projects will need to have some funding already secured to be taken into consideration.

Reykjavik Arts Festival has a special focus on new work and the creative intersection of the arts. We are looking for events from all sorts of artists which appeal to diverse audiences, events outside of the Reykjavik capital area and in public spaces as well as participatory events and creations which reach outside of the traditional sphere of arts.

The Reykjavik Arts Festival is committed to ensuring that arts and culture are a right for all, not just a privilege for the few. We aim to reflect the diversity of human life in the festival and welcome proposals from all kinds of artists.

All proposals need to be submitted via this online form.

Deadline is at midnight 13th MARCH 2023.
If you have any questions regarding the form or the selection process please drop us a line at artfest@artfest.is.
