Photo Marathon and Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik
Description: This is the ninth year that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons! Every two weeks throughout the year volunteers from all over the world come to Iceland for an intensive Photo marathon project. SEEDS coordinators work with the participants to develop their unique photographic voice through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style.
Type of Work: When the workshop ends, we gather as a group to select some of our best pictures from the trip and prepare those images for an informal group exhibition locally. While learning more about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by working for the City of Reykjavik. One of our objectives is to deliver messages and draw the attention to the local population through pictures and photos made during the camp.
Study Theme: Iceland Airwaves (02.11 - 06.11.2016) is an annual music festival hosted in the city of Reykjavik. There are performances from established and new artists in a host of different venues including art museums and record stores, among many others. More information at www.icelandairwaves.is
SEEDS will not be able to give away any passes for the festival, there are however a lot of free events all around town to take advantage of.
Accommodation: SEEDS participants will stay in a house in Reykjavík. The facilities are basic with a shower, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. We will sleep in shared rooms in a sleeping bag accommodation. Please bring your own sleeping bag.
Language: English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed.
Requirements: Participation fee EUR 250 (Euros). Please note that these fees are to be paid to SEEDS on arrival in either Euros or Icelandic krónas.
Approximate Location: Reykjavik is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources - geothermal power and glacial rivers. The world’s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and North America. Reykjavík is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides.
