Danish Cultural Institute is a self-governing organisation with the aim to foster dialogue, exchange and mutual inspiration between Denmark and the rest of the world. It is our mission through networks, cooperation and exchange of best practice to create cultural and societal value in Denmark as well as abroad.
Our work is founded on a broad conceptual platform that embraces art, culture and society; within those areas, we work for a common ground that unites people across cultures and national borders.
Danish Cultural Institute facilitates networks and strengthens collaboration between Danish and international artists, cultural institutions and the creative sectors. In partnership with other European cultural institutes, cultural, arts and educational institutions, governmental bodies and individual artists, we create experiences, exchanges, events and short- and long-term projects. Our projects are rooted in a deep understanding of the specific cultural and political landscape, we are operating in.
Our activities span from concerts to exhibitions, conferences to field trips, to theatre, film, dance etc. We strive to make culture play an active role in daily life, granting new experiences to participants and audiences alike.
