Ministry of Culture of Denmark supports the activities of Ukraine House in Denmark



On September 29, 2022, the Danish Ministry of Culture initiated the allocation of 7.6 million kroner of financial support over the course of a three-year period (2022-2025) towards the establishment of a Ukrainian cultural institution in Copenhagen. Now, the final decision on the allocation of funds must be approved by the Danish Parliament.


“This horrifying war in Ukraine has also had a considerable impact on the country’s culture. A large part of the population has been forced to flee and requires support in preserving and practising their culture. This holds true for Ukrainians in Denmark, who have expressed a great desire for the creation of a Culture House,” stated Minister of Culture Ane Halsboe-Jørgensen.

“The decision to establish a Ukrainian Culture House in Denmark is therefore important and necessary. I hope the Culture House will provide a gathering place where refugees from Ukraine and Ukrainian permanent residents in Denmark can come together. I also hope that, in time, the Culture House will be a gathering place for both Danes and Ukrainians and contribute to raising awareness about Ukraine’s meaningful cultural heritage and rich cultural life. I believe this will strengthen our countries’ cultural connections – also after the end of the war,” highlighted Danish Minister of Culture.



The establishment of the Ukrainian cultural institution in Copenhagen will serve the long-term need for and be a symbol of an unprecedented level of support from the Danish government and the Danish people for the people of Ukraine.
