Menningarmiðstöð Fljótsdalshéraðs was founded in 2005 and is one of four culture centers in East Iceland with an emphasis on theater and dance.
MMF, as the center is called, offers all kinds of artistic experiences, lectures, workshops, performances, exhibitions and more. MMF has a close connection to the local schools and regularly welcomes visitors of young age.
The MMF is located in an old building, formerly a meat-processing plant, that has been restored as the Slaughterhouse Culture Center in Egilsstadir.
It has many rooms and one can say it’s a house with dynamism for cultural activities, in spite of its name.
The Slaughterhouse has a small artist residency, an artist workshop, sound studio and all kinds of venues.
