The Danish Cultural Institute work to create, strengthen, and support dialogue and cultural exchange between Denmark and the rest of the world. Through art and cultural cooperation, we seek to bridge the gaps between distinct, and sometimes conflicting, countries in order to enhance intercultural understanding worldwide.
We work to increase the knowledge of Danish society and its values while at the same time learn from the cultural contexts in which the branches of the DCI are based. By doing so, we aim at creating common ground across both cultural and national boundaries.
The Danish Cultural Institute is a self-governing organization bringing together international artists, cultural institutions, and creative sectors. The DCI covers a wide range of activities in St. Petersburg, including music festivals, book readings, plays, exhibitions, and study tours in collaboration with both local and international partners. Each event is created on the basis of an in-depth knowledge of the local culture and the political landscape in which we work, thus making our projects beneficial for performers and participants alike.
The Institute is a member of EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture).
