Children and youth culture

Denmark has a long and firmly-rooted tradition of ensuring that children, young people and their families have a large choice of cultural experiences based on breadth, versatility and quality.

Children and young people should have the opportunity of seeing and making use of high quality art and culture in their everyday lives and on their terms. This is a key focal point in Danish cultural policy. Denmark has a very strong tradition of dissemination of culture at the level of children and young people. This is why it is also a focus area in the Ministry of Culture.

Network for Children and Culture

The Network for Children and Culture is the advisory body of the Minister and the Ministry of Culture for children’s culture. The network consists of representatives of the Danish Agency for Culture, the Danish Film Institute, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Social Welfare.

The main task of the Network for Children and Culture is to create greater cohesion in the state allocations for children’s culture and greater totality in working with the many facets of children’s culture.
