Residency Coordinator: Krzysztof “Kris” Madejski

Krzysztof Madejski, born in Poland in 1988, embodies the essence of “jack of all trades, master of none, though oftentimes better than master of one.” His journey has taken him across continents, from the dynamic urban centers of Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, and Korea, to the serene landscapes of Iceland. It’s in these varied locales that Krzysztof has not only managed a hotel, refining his hospitality skills, but also excelled in organizing events in Taipei and video editing in Poland. Each role has allowed him to blend his knack for hospitality with creative and organizational tasks, showcasing his versatile skill set. Now after settling down in the East of Iceland, Krzysztof applies this diverse background to his role as an artist coordinator at the Fish Factory. Alongside his professional endeavors, he brings a piece of home to the workplace by occasionally bringing his dog, Miso, to work.

His presence adds a layer of joy and warmth to our creative space, making him an indispensable member of our community.
