2019 Year of Culture
In 2019 the cultural exchange between Denmark and South Korea will be strengthened through a significant cultural effort, involving key cultural figures and institutions in both Denmark and South Korea with the memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a Year of Culture signed between the two nation’s Ministries of Culture at the centre.
The cultural effort is an important part of the 60 year anniversary celebration for the establishment of diplomatic relations between Denmark and South Korea. HRH the Crown Princess of Denmark is the Danish patron for the effort alongside the South Korean patron, cultural icon and former ballerina, Kang Sue-Jin.
Events and activities related to the celebration take place in both Denmark and South Korea from January through December 2019. The cultural effort is built through close cooperation between the Agency for Culture and Palaces, the Danish Embassy in Seoul, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Danish Cultural Institute in Beijing.
Cultural activities are initiated by the Danish Arts Foundation, Danish cultural institutions and artists. Generously sponsored by a long list of Danish and South Korean corporations.
