Danish Arts Foundation

Danish Arts Council is Denmark’s largest arts foundation. They work to spread the arts to a wide audience all over Denmark, to promote Danish art internationally, and to pave the way for talented artists.

They support creative thinking and innovative ideas by funding more than 6,000 artists and art projects every year. Through more than 60 different funding programmes, they fund the production and promotion of both visual arts, film, literature, music, performing arts, architecture, crafts, and design – and all that transcends the borders of these art forms. And foreign artists may apply for funding for artwork or projects through the international funding programmes.

Their 16 expert committees are responsible for awarding grants to both Danish and foreign art projects, based on the 12,500 applications that they receive every year from artists, institutions, schools, organisations, and companies.
