Denmark and Russia have a long and rich history of cultural co-operation in classical art and culture, including ballet and literature. There is great potential for extending this intercultural dialogue into new fields such as architecture, contemporary art and museums. This programme aims to help realise this potential by facilitating cultural exchange between the vibrant modern cultural and artistic scenes of the two countries.
