The Nordic House in Reykjavik

The Nordic House in Reykjavik (NOREY) is a culture centre managed by The Nordic Council of Ministers.

The house was opened in 1968, and its purpose is to promote Nordic collaboration and to strengthen the Nordic relationship, plus function as a connection between Iceland and the rest of the Nordic countries. The institution aims to be a Nordic culture and knowledge centre, and a creative meeting place.

Every year The Nordic House in Reykjavik organises a diversity of art exhibitions, concerts, lectures, poetry readings, workshops and other cultural events.

In Icelandic The Nordic House is called Norræna húsið.
