2022 was a banner year for the unique collaboration between North American Icelandic groups and Iceland. Known as the Snorri Program, this cultural partnership returned from the shutdowns caused by the global Covid 19 pandemic.
All three offerings (Snorri, Snorri West, and Snorri Plus) took place this summer and elicited rave reviews from the participants.
2023 will be building on the momentum established in 2022 and could include you as one of the participants, but you need to act fast!
