LUNGA is an arts festival/workshop for young people run by young people. This is run in the East of Iceland, in a narrow fjord with a small village named Seyðisfjörður. In July 2010 this took place for the 10th time. The young people allowed me to participate with a short lecture/dialogue about identity. This I did with my friend Goddur, professor of graphic design at the Iceland Academy of Art in Reykjavik, that is actually also just over 10 years old.

I had really good time following the work of the young people. The participants were around 110 students (over 50% from abroad) and many mentors and organizers. They worked in various groups concentrating on different issues like theater, music, performance, fashion, illustration etc. This photo album maybe purveys some of the ambient that was in Seyðisfjörður this week. I try to give short explanation with the photos so that people can get a idea of what is going on. If you are interested to participate next year (only young people allowed) follow the LUNGA website and write to them.
