The Gil Society was founded in 1991, marking the beginning of the construction of an Art Centre in Grófargil which is now the focal point of culture in Akureyri. This is where we find the Akureyri Art Museum, the Akureyri School of Art and exhibition halls of varying dimensions. This is the location of Deiglan, multiple restaurants and artists studios. The Gil Society runs an artist residency and is an organiser of art exhibitions, music and other happenings connected with the diverse and ambitious cultural life of the townspeople of Akureyri.
