Danish Cultural Institute

Danish Cultural Institute is a self-governing institution. Since 1940 they have been engaged in fostering mutual understanding between people and cultures.

Danish Cultural Institute believes that the arts and culture are among Denmark’s most important assets. They are committed to sharing knowledge on and sympathy for the values of the Danish society. In cooperation with partners, they develop international culture and societal events, projects, and people to people contacts that can provide mutual value and inspire.

It is their mission to contribute to strengthening Denmark’s way of handling some of the challenges of globalisation. They do this by focusing on arts, culture and society, especially with regards to equal rights, education, sustainable development, democracy and active citizenship.

Their vision is to show that the exchange of art, culture and knowledge can contribute to handling global challenges and strengthening the Sustainable Development Goals.
