  • Textile Residency Scholarships 2019 - 2021

    The Textile Center awards six 2-month residential scholarships for textile artists in 2019 - 2021. This opportunity came via Nordic Culture Point. 

    We will award six textile artists based in the Nordic-Baltic region with scholarships to develop and present new work in Iceland, lead a community workshop, connect to international networks and gain insight in Icelandic textile tradition and innovation. The deadline for residencies in 2019 was June 15. We are now in the process of reviewing applications.
