What we do internationally
We work to foster the international cultural and commercial development and promotion of Danish architecture and construction. We set up partnerships for individual projects and exhibitions and do travelling exhibitions.
The Danish Arts Foundation’s Committee for Architecture runs a number of both international and national funding programs. These funding programs are intended for architects, studios, and institutions with a relation to the Danish architecture scene.
We fund the following areas:
- Grants to support projects with an ambition to push the boundaries of the field of architecture. We prioritize projects exhibiting a critical and ethical awareness about the role architecture plays in relation to its surroundings and society in general.
- Grants that provide possibilities for groups and individuals that wish to seek out knowledge, inspiration and partnerships abroad.
- Grants that provide possibilities for groups and individuals that wish to conduct research on relevant issues concerning the artistic dimension of architecture, develop new techniques, and seek out new knowledge and inspiration.
- A residencyprogram in Can Lis that provides architects and cross-disciplinary groups with the possibility to develop their work in the inspiring surroundings of Utzon’s architecture.
