Our results and plans
2021 was a fruitful year for the Danish Cultural Institute in Saint Petersburg – despite the limitations in relation to the pandemic:
- We held a successful “Nordic Weeks in North-West Russia” festival which in 2021 was dedicated to ecology and sustainable development and was held in six regions: Kaliningrad, Arkhangelsk, St. Petersburg, Vyborg, Murmansk and Petrozavodsk.
- In cooperation with the State Hermitage Museum and the Thorvaldsen Museum, an exhibition was organized to present the work of the famous Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen. 🖼 🎨
- We “reached” the Arctic with the help of various projects, such as the “Waterfront” and the Arctic Open Film Festival ⛄️
This is just to name a few of our achievements!
Our plans for 2022 include the development of our cooperation with the State Hermitage Museum, and a new visit to Russia by the Sisters Hope performance group, an exhibition project by Danish and Russian artists about the role of the older women in modern society and a research project with the name “ The Art of Staying Healthy“.
We will be working on projects in Saint Petersburg and will again go to the Arctic, to cities such as Murmansk and Arkhangelsk!
We wish everyone a happy new year! The Danish Cultural Institute in Saint Petersburg is looking forward to interesting and wonderful projects in 2022!
