Artists’ in Iceland Visa Action Group.  (AIVAG.)

Artists in Iceland Visa Action Group (AIVAG)
is an advocacy group working towards the possibility and accessibility of residency permits for artists and freelancers in Iceland. We are an open interdisciplinary collaborative group. You can reach us through our instagram, or our facebook page Artists in Iceland Visa Action Group, where we announce our open meetings and activities.
AIVAG was founded in response to the article Racism and Xenophobia in the Icelandic Art Scene by Noemi Ehrat in the Radical Art Review.That highlighted this and many other issues within the Icelandic Art scene and society at large.
