  • 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 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 first application round for scholarships in 2019 has now closed.
