Danish Centre for Culture and Development
The Danish Centre for Culture and Development
(DCCD) was established in October 1998 to strengthen cultural co-operation
between Denmark and the non-western world though festivals, information
activities, networking, the support of projects etc.
DCCD provides an entry point into Denmark for
the promotion of non-western arts and cultures and is particularly
interested in facilitating information about projects that could be
presented in Denmark, or those in search of a Danish partner. DCCD
aims to improve cultural co-operation between the western and non-western
world in terms of information, fundraising, networking, dialogue and
The Centre's first major project is the Images
of the World festival, to be held in Denmark in August and September
2000. The festival theme is the cultural consequences of globalisation,
and DCCD is inviting proposals for 'global projects' that
- involve artists, cultural personalities, cultural
expressions from several continents
- are local or cross-cultural and feature global
expression, a universal theme or a global social issue
- encourage intercultural dialogue about the
'global ethics' needed for peace and development worldwide.
Preliminary proposals for large
projects are encouraged for August 1999, but proposals will also be
welcome after this date.
