How we work

The Agency for Culture and Palaces works internationally on the basis of the government platform and strategies in this area, as well as inter-ministerial work groups and the actions plans and focus areas formulated thereby for international cultural exchange.

In addition, the Agency for Culture and Palaces undertakes secretariat tasks for councils and committees, including projects, studies, and development plans touching on Danish arts and culture and the promotion and development of Danish arts and culture internationally.

A central component in the Agency for Culture and Palaces' handling of international tasks is the steering committee governed by a cooperation agreement between the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Danish Ministry of Culture on international cultural exchange. Pursuant to the agreement the Agency for Culture and Palaces is the executive and coordinating agent with respect to the entities of the agreement – for example, in the coordination of cultural work by Danish representatives and cultural institutes abroad.
