The 2021 edition of LIAF has been postponed until 2022 due to the covid-19 pandemic. Stay tuned for news and updates on the upcoming festival.
LIAF 2019 took 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 ebbed and flowed through the year in four small communities across the entire archipelago. The exhibitions and public programme took place in Svolvær from August 30 to September 29.
