August 30 – September 29, Svolvær
Lofoten International Art Festival (LIAF) 2019 takes its inspiration from the multitude of inhabitants, materials, struggles, and processes that reside and take place within the wide intertidal zone surrounding the Lofoten islands. Like the tide, the festival ebbs and flows through the year in four small communities across the entire archipelago. The exhibitions and public programme take place in Svolvær from August 30 to September 29.
