When we opened Simbahöllin, we wanted it to become a cultural hub and to create an environment to bring more arts and events to Þingeyri. We host live music, performances, and art exhibitions, and in the summer we have work by local artists, as well as handicraft on display.

In 2015 we finally realized a longtime dream of establishing our own art residency. We now run the Westfjords Residency, bringing together a international group of artists for 10 days, to collaborate, work on their craft, and create a new cultural dialogue in the village.
