A Part of the Ecosystem within Art and Design

The Danish Art Workshops contribute to the field of art and culture in Denmark by providing professionals with a unique platform for artistic development and production. This is not an artist in residency in the original sense, but a project based workshop environment. With a broad knowledge of artistic techniques and materials, fully equipped workshops, and unique production facilities we offer the most professional conditions for developing large scale and/or demanding projects.
All professionals no matter work field can apply for residency.

Our goal is to strengthen the capability to develop and produce art and design in Denmark. We do this by offering our own workshops and through collaborations with other artistic organizations, educational institutions etc.

Our three focal points are:

  • Artistic Production
    We contribute to the realisation of art and design projects by offering professional facilities and counselling.

  • Artistic Development
    We support innovative and research based artistic production.

  • Sharing Knowledge
    We strengthen innovation and development of art and design through a variety of communication activities – courses, meetings, talks and events.

we regularly arrange artist and design talks, participate in the yearly Culture Night, and host a number of meetings, workshops and events within the industries. If you wish to borrow our meeting facilities, please contact the administration.
