Social work


I have been the chairman of the cultural affairs committee in Bláskógabyggð since 2018 and I am organising theater tours, book presentations and art courses for residents. I have organised the family and kite festival at Skálholt 2019. I took an active part in the development of the school grounds (the outdoor learning area). In addition, I work in the women's association in Biskupstungur. I'm the organiser of regular women's meetings called "Sköpum saman". We are drawing and painting together and I have also held courses or invited outside teachers to hold art courses. I have been involved in set design for the theater group Biskupstungna in recent years.
