The Danish Cultural Institute was founded in 1940 as an independent institution. The Danish Cultural Institute has branches in six different countries and collaborative partners all over the world.
The institute promotes dialogue and understanding across cultural differences and national borders. Our work is founded on a broad conceptual platform that embraces art, culture and society; areas that unite people across cultures, promote international understanding and facilitate intercultural communication.
The Danish Cultural Institute facilitates networks and strengthens collaboration between Danish and international artists and cultural institutions. Using culture as a common starting point, we create platforms for knowledge sharing, the exchange of ideas and experiences, resulting in lasting cultural relations.
Moreover, the institute provides Danish classes at the A1 and A2 levels. Classes are currently available in Brasília, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
