Visual art and textiles students at VMA - the Akureyri Comprehensive College Final Projects 2017 Akureyri Art Museum, Ketilhús, April 22ⁿᵈ - 30ᵗʰ / November 25ᵗʰ - December 3ʳᵈ It has become a tradition to exhibit the final projects of Akureyri Comprehensive College’s art and design students at the Akureyri Art Museum. Two exhibitions are held every year, one at the end of the spring term and one at the end of the fall term. This is the third year in a row, these exhibitions are held in cooperation with Akureyri Art Museum. When preparing for these exhibitions, students choose an assignment based on their field of interest and have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of mediums which they have encountered before, or acquaint themselves with new ones. The students have gone through the idea- and research phase in the artistic process, and they search high and low for data for their own creative process, depending on what is suitable for each idea and each medium. The students have one semester to work on their final assignments and set up the exhibition in cooperation with an instructor and the other students. The values, on which this process is based, are initiative, creative thinking, and disciplined work methods.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
