Cultural Fund

The Gunnar Gunnarsson institute runs a cultural fund. The Cultural Fund was established in 2013 by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The purpose of the Cultural Fund is twofold: on the one hand, to support the activities of the Gunnar Gunnarsson Institute at Skriðuklaustur with annual contributions to it; on the other hand, supporting writers, artists, scholars, and students to work is consistent with the role of the Gunnar Institute.

The fund is intended to promote cultural activities at Skriðuklaustur and to strengthen the image of The Gunnar Gunnarsson institute as a cultural institution.

The Cultural funds board advertises when grants are available from the cultural fund and establishes the emphasis for each deadline.
