The North Norwegian Art Centre is Northern Norway's regional center for contemporary art. Our aim is to create interest for art and arts and crafts in the region through a regional and international orientation.

In Svolvær, The North Norwegian Art Centre works with an ongoing exhibition program and sales of arts and crafts from the region. The Centre runs Kunstnerhuset in Lofoten, a residency house for artists located on the island of Svinøya. Every other year The North Norwegian Art Centre organizes Lofoten International Art Festival, LIAF.
