Further Information

Pólar festival is a two day festival of art and innovation in the Icelandic village of Stöðvarfjörður that will be held from the 12th to the 14th of July this year in cooperation with a local self-sustaining festival called Maður er manns gaman that has taken place in the village the last couple of years.  

Pólar revolves around the concept of skillsharing and our purpose is to gather different people from different directions with different skills and knowledge for sharing and enjoying. The possibilities of cooperation, creation and production will be explored in short and colourful courses, workshops and art events. 

One of the main objectives of the festival is to highlight the village of Stöðvarfjörð and the unique opportunities it offers. Special emphasis will be laid on exploring unorthodox options in rural innovation but the festival is not least intended to parttake in the bustling cultural environment that has been blooming in the last few years in East Iceland. 

Stöðvarfjörður is one of the southern fjords in East Iceland and is located between Fáskrúðsfjörður and Breiðdalsvík. In the last decades the population in Stöðvarfjörður has decreased radically, and counts around 190 today. One of the defining factors there like in many other small Icelandic fishing villages is the privatization of the fishing industry which eventually lead to the village quota being re-located. Since then the fish factory has stood empty and was meant to be demolished a few years ago.  


Instead a group of artists and innovators negotiated to overtake the fish factory in order to create an exciting cultural environment in Stöðvarfjörður. Now the fishing factory is supposed to serve as a quality-guarantee kitchen, a wood-workshop and a concert place. 

The village has a rich heritage in handcraft and natural production. It hosts a renowned stone museum which is visited by thousands of tourists every year. Kirkjubær is an hostel in an old country church where a part of the festival schedule will take place.  

We will be receiving more than 70 participants this summer and that is where you come in. The festival is non-profit but we hope to be able to accommodate our participants. All the small costs come together. We already received a grant from a cultural agency in Iceland but we still need a little bit more to be able to accommodate everyone. We would be extremely thankful if you would help us out by donating a little bit. 


--- Lýsing á verkefni á íslensku ---

Pólar festival er tveggja daga lista- og frumkvöðlahátíð sem haldin verður á Stöðvarfirði 12.-14. júlí. Hátiðin verður haldin í samvinnu við Maður er manns gaman, sjálfbæra þorpshátíð sem hefur verið starfrækt á Stöðvarfirði undanfarin ár.  

Pólar byggir á hugmyndafræði sem mætti þýða á íslensku sem hæfileikasamfélag (e. skillsharing).  Ætlunin er að  ná saman fólki úr ólíkum áttum og margvíslegum skapandi greinum til þess að deila reynslu sinni og þekkingu til að rannsaka nýja möguleika í samvinnu, sköpun og framleiðslu. Dagskráin felst í stuttum og fjölbreyttum námskeiðum, fyrirlestrum og ýmsum listviðburðum.  

Eitt helsta markmið hátíðarinnar er að vekja athygli á Stöðvarfirði og þeim möguleikum sem þar eru fyrir hendi. Sérstök áhersla er lögð á að kanna óhefðbundna valkosti í atvinnuþróun á landsbyggðinni en hátíðin er jafnframt hugsuð sem framlag til þeirrar menningarflóru sem hefur dafnað vel undanfarin ár á austurlandi.   


Stöðvarfjörður er einn af syðri fjörðum austurlands og stendur milli Fáskrúðsfjarðar og Breiðdalsvíkur. Á Stöðvarfirði hafa um 190 manns fasta búsetu en íbúafjöldi Fjarðarbyggðar er í kringum 4600 manns. Lengi störfuðu flestir bæjarbúar við sjávarútveg en á undanförnum árum hefur atvinnulífið tekið miklum breytingum.  

Nokkuð er síðan að frystihúsið á staðnum var keypt af stórútgerðinni Samherja. Þau héldu áfram starfsemi um nokkurt skeið en enduðu á því að loka og flytja starfsemina annað. Í kjölfarið hefur flestallri þjónustu þorpsins verið hagrætt og hún sameinuð í stærri útibúum í nærliggjandi þorpum og kaupstöðum Fjarðarbyggðar. Nú sækir drjúgur hluti þorpsbúa vinnu út fyrir Stöðvarfjörð. 

Á síðustu árum hafa skapast áhugaverðar aðstæður til nýsköpunar á þessum stað. Fyrir skömmu átti að rífa frystihúsið sem hafði staðið tómt síðan starfsemi þar lauk. Þá keypti hópur listafólks og frumkvöðla húsið í þeim tilgangi að breyta því í sjálfbæra sköpunarmiðstöð. Þar stendur til að koma upp ýmis konar smiðjum fyrir listamenn og vottuðu eldhúsi til matvælaframleiðslu svo eitthvað sé nefnt. Verkefnið er komið vel af stað, búið er safna saman verkfærum og setja upp smíðaverkstæði í húsinu. Að auki hefur frystiklefa hússins verið breytt í rúmgóðan samkomusal með góðum hljómburði.  

Í þorpinu er rík hefð fyrir handverki og framleiðslu á nytjavörum úr náttúrunni. Þar er einnig starfrækt rómað steinasafn sem tugþúsundir ferðamanna heimsækja á ári hverju. Kirkjubær er gistiheimili í gömlu kirkjunni á staðnum en þar verða tónleikar og aðrir atburðir á meðan á hátíðinni stendur. 

Pólarhátíðin nýtur fjárhagslegs stuðnings Austurbrúar sem gerir skipuleggjendum kleift að koma til móts við þáttakendur hátíðarinnar með uppihaldi og gistingu á meðan á hátíðinni stendur.
