What we are doing


Cooperative projects

Alongside our Danish and International partners our institutes abroad develop around 900 cultural and societal events and projects a year. For each of our projects it is essential that the necessary fundraising is a collaborative effort. Danish Cultural Institute does not give funding to non-partners’ projects.

We always focus on providing an artist fee in our projects, but it is depending on the necessary funding.


Our focus on long-term cooperation in regions and countries gives our institutes a deep knowledge about the cultures and personalities of their regions, both in the cultural sector, with social and educational institutions, authorities and NGOs.


Every year we are happy to receive requests from many different Danish cultural actors, and we give advice on how their idea for a project can become successful in cooperation with local partners and provide mutual inspiration. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to advise all of them.
