The Cultural Development and Exchange Fund (CDEF) provides support to contemporary artists and cultural performances in Vietnam and to cultural exchange activities between Denmark and Vietnam.
Support may be given to projects that have the objective of:
- Presenting Danish culture in Vietnam for the purpose of enhancing and inspiring Vietnam’s arts and culture through development of partnerships between Danish and Vietnamese artists, and to stimulate mutual inspiration and exchange of experiences between artists from both countries.
- Presenting Vietnamese culture to the Danish public for inspiration, enrichment and understanding and enhancing dialogue and tolerance through performance by Vietnamese artists in Denmark alone or with Danish participation.
- Presenting events and festivals in Vietnam with an art development perspective by Vietnamese artists alone or with Danish participation.
Danish as well as Vietnamese individuals or organisations may apply for support to projects. In cases where an individual or a group of individuals seek support, a CV along with relevant documents or material (for instance, copy of reviews, educational certificates, recording of previous productions on CD, DVD etc.) must be enclosed.
