In the year 2000, the LungA festival saw the light of day for the first time. This was a festival that celebrated creativity, art, collaboration and culture in general, through a week of workshops, lectures and other activities, ending off in a weekend of celebration, exhibitions and concerts. A powerful mix of art, creativity, expression, and beautiful nature.
Since the beginning, LungA has been part of creating a creative and artistic environment in Seyðisfjörður, and has gained a strong reputation, in both Iceland and abroad, for it’s ability to create and facilitate an amazing atmosphere and high quality workshops and activities. Furthermore it brings joy, self realization, new friends, lovers and good memories to those who visit.
In 2010 the idea of establishing a school in Seyðisfjörður, based on the LungA principles, was formed. And now this has become a reality with the first team starting in 2014.
The LungA family now consists of both an annual festival and a school. On a daily basis the two are run separately, but sharing name, values and ideas they are very much part of the same family.
