Culture on the Edge About Danish Cultural Institute
We believe that art and culture are among Denmark’s most important assets.
Together with partners, we develop international activities that challenge boundaries and create mutual value and inspire. Especially when it comes to equal rights, education, sustainable development, democracy and active citizenship. Important values in the world and in Denmark.
Our vision is to show that the exchange of art, culture and knowledge can contribute to handling global challenges and strengthen the Sustainable Development Goals.
Danish Cultural Institute is a self-governing institution. Since 1940 we have been engaged in creating mutual understanding between people.
Where we work
Our Institutes abroad are the focal points for the creation of long term cultural relations. With five institutes and activities in several countries, we strive to be close to the world developments, right, where art, culture and knowledge really do make a difference.
Headquarters is in Copenhagen.
