Culture, Press and Public Diplomacy

TRH the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark attend the opening of the BIG New York office with world famous architect Bjarke Ingels, October 2011.

The Department of Culture, Press and Public Diplomacy works to disseminate knowledge about Denmark, within 21 East Coast states as well as two territories; Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

We inform the American public about Denmark and Danish culture in general and counsel both Danish and American media, artists and cultural organizations. 

We work closely together with cultural operators and institutions, partnering around events and facilitating individual projects.

We assist American journalists and media with their inquiries about Denmark and service Danish journalists in the US.

Sign up for our 'Denmark in New York' newsletter to get monthly updates on cultural events and happenings in and around New York City.
