Culture on the Edge
We believe that the arts and culture are among Denmark’s most important assets.
Together with partners, we develop international activities that push boundaries and create opportunities, which provide mutual value and inspire.
Our vision is to show that the exchange of arts, culture and knowledge can contribute to handling the challenges of globalisation. Especially when it comes to equal rights, education, sustainable development, democracy and active citizenship. Important values in the world and in Denmark.
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 seven institutes, three focus countries and pop-up activities in an additional six countries, we strive to be close to the world developments, right, where art, culture and knowledge really do make a difference.
6 branches in: Beijing, New Delhi, Riga, Rio de Janeiro, St. Petersburg and Warsaw.
3 focus countries: Belarus, Turkey and Ukraine.
Pop-up activities in: Estonia, Holland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Germany and Austria.
