Danish Art Workshops – Selected Projects
-An exhibition platform for art and design in Denmark’s largest workshop building
In the many specially equipped workshops, professional artists and designers can apply for residency to develop their ideas and produce large and complex works with support and sparring from skilled professionals. Here lies the root of large amounts of the art and design we see today; here new talents on the art and design scene are born.
It seems only natural that the Danish Art Workshops during 3daysofdesign opens up the house and shows 10-15 projects, created in the perfect setting for development and innovation. Normally, the old warehouse is closed to the public, but for 3 days, 12 – 14 June 2024, the building functions as a showroom for selected projects, developed at least partly in the building during the last 5 years.
Are you a professional artist and/or designer, do you have a project that was created at the Danish Art Workshops that is said to be both original, bold and experimental?
-Then you can apply for an exhibition space at the Danish Art Workshops – Selected Projects under 3daysofdesign. You get 5 free m2 in one of Christianshavn’s most beautiful studios, located a few meters from the canal on the way out to Refshaleøen, which presents unique venues with original design too.
If your project is suitable for it, it can be exhibited outdoors.
Your participation will be marked in the 3days programme, in the press material, and special tours will be arranged for Danish and international press.

Artists and designers who have worked at the Danish Art Workshops within the last 5 years.
