About Danish Cultural Institute

Culture on the Edge

We believe that the 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, two focus countries 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.

 

Five institutes in: China, Brazil , India, Latvia, and Russia

 

Activities in: Turkey, Ukraine, the Eastern Neighbourhood Countries, Estonia, Lithuania,, and South Korea.
