The new programme's title is 'Land' and can be understood as an attempt at being immersed in our natural
environment in an aesthetic, theoretical and practical sense. Before the first full programme opens, we
invite you to participate in a shortened version called "In Between 1234".
The BETA Land Programme "In Between 1234" consists of practical and theoretical workshops and research centred around natural materials and bush-craft, tools, ideas and stories, food harvesting and preservation and excursions and hikes. Participants live together, work together, and participate in hands-on workshops taught by externally invited workshop leaders.
The programme is a space created to connect deeper and differently to the fjord, the land, and wherever you and we are. The programme attempts to develop a sense of belonging to nature - to the land - to ourselves.
We will collect and harvest. We will hike and hunt. We will nurture and grow. We will ponder and experiment. We will document and share. We will be in the mountains and occasionally sleep outside. We will need good boots and a bag of trail mix.
for 2023: BETA Land Programme "In Between 1234"
15 November 2022.
9 January – 5 February 2023
The first full-term Land programme (12 weeks) will happen in September 2023. Applications will open from March 2023.
"In Between 1234" is a BETA version of an entirely new Land programme at the LungA School. BETA means that we are testing this new programme in a shorter version. We will do this for four weeks, from 9 January—5 February 2023, in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland.
Who can apply
Everybody can apply - no specific experience is needed. However, as we will be spending time outside in Iceland
in winter, some practical experience in hiking might be a good idea.
The main activities will take place in Seyðisfjörður, Iceland. During the four-week programme, we will go on 2-3
trips in the nearby environment.
Participants will need to bring the following equipment:
Woollen underwear; woollen undershirts; hiking pants; a warm sweater; a down jacket; rain pants; hiking shoes; walking socks; a hat; gloves; a backpack; a sleeping bag rated -5 °c; a spork, food container, water bottle and cup; a pocket knife; sunglasses; sun protection; personal medical kit and swimwear.
