Culture and the Arts

The Embassy of Denmark in Washington D.C. and the Consulate General of Denmark in New York support the communication and export of Danish culture across the visual and performing arts, music, literature, museums, historical and cultural heritage, film, architecture and design.

We advise both Danish and U.S. artists, media and cultural organizations. 


We work closely with local cultural stakeholders and institutions to facilitate Danish and Nordic cultural events and counsel individual projects. 


We inform the American public about Denmark and Danish culture in general.
