About Kulturprinsen

Kulturprinsen is a development centre for child and youth culture, which creates projects, builds interdisciplinary partnerships, networks and communities in Denmark and abroad.

Based on UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, Kulturprinsen works to ensure the right of all children to encounter art and culture in their everyday lives. Kulturprinsen aims to strengthen courage, imagination, life skills, sustainable education, action and cultural identity in children and young people through arts and culture - to inspire and equip children and young people to navigate the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.

Kulturprinsen is locally based in Viborg and functions as a national development centre with a global outlook - the only one of its kind in Denmark.

Kulturprinsen's main partners are day-care centres and schools, professional cultural operators, artists, arts and cultural operators, and research and education institutions.
