The LungA School currently has two different programs, soon to be three. They exist separately, simultaneously and function as each other’s support and constant interruption. When we talk about programs we are referring to those frames into which we make the initial invitation, and to which you can apply. This invitation is a starting point and the way that the programs then unfold and how the relation and boundaries between the programs develop, is constantly moving.

84 — A composition for untrained voices

'84' is 84 days. The twelve week program '84' is where it all started and this is open for everyone to apply. It takes place two times a year, in the fall and in the spring. You can see when the next program is HERE.

Whether you have a background in art, or wish to pursue further education within this, is not important. It is important that you have a desire to learn and explore, and an openness towards surprises and challenges.



Clarification


'84' is 84 days. 84 days is twelve weeks. Those twelve weeks are a mix of workshops hosted by guest artists and weeks that are focused on developing one’s own praxis through experimentation, conversation and reflection.

You stay and live at the school for the duration of the program.

1085 — us in nature, nature in us.

Mt. Bjólfur (1085m) is the tallest mountain of the mountain chain surrounding the town of Seyðisfjörður, home of the LungA school. We are thrilled to present this new LungA program which carries an attempt to refigure and rewild the companionship with nature in order to find new ways of becoming human.

This twelve-week program will start in 2023 with a BETA programme in January and a full length program in the fall. 1085 is where we are heading next, and it is open for everyone to apply. It takes place two times a year, in the fall and in the spring. Applications for the BETA programme will open on September 15th 2022.

1085 is for those who wish to explore the possibilities that come with connecting deep to the natural environment through actions and reactions such as mountaineering, gathering, hunting and growing food, engaging in rewiring conversations and exploring and caring in various ways for the land. Whether you wish to pursue a career or further education within this, is not important. It is important that you have a desire to learn and explore, and an openness towards surprises and challenges.

Clarification


'1085' is also 84 days which is twelve weeks. Those twelve weeks are a mix of workshops hosted by guest naturalists, scientists and artists and weeks that are focused on developing one’s own praxis through experimentation, conversation and reflection in and with nature.

You stay and live at the school for the duration of the program.

Note


The LungA School is an entity staging its own existence. It is the form given to an attempt to live our way into some answers that cannot be found in any other way than by the passing of time, the unfolding of events and the thoughtful consideration and contemplation upon it all.

Or rather: it is the form given to a way of living with the questions.

Our programs move through different stages. These are characterized by a difference in language, a difference in content and a difference in focus, but also by a similarity which allows for several cycles to occur during the program and several opportunities to revisit an idea or a medium in order to experience the changes in perception that occurs over time.

The stages occur chronologically, but are overlapping and seamlessly woven together so that the journey through them becomes one continous movement. We exist and explore in the space between clarity and madness. And you are most welcome to join.

Residency


The residency program is a twelve-week program that exists alongside the programmes’. The Residency invites artists to bring their work and practice into the LungA School, and into a situation where they exist alongside all the other activities that take place, informing, influencing and disturbing these. The residency is curated by the LungA School and is currently by invitation only.
