Danish Architectural Policy - Putting People First

Dansk arkitekturpolitik - sætter folk først



Architecture is for people. It sets the framework for our lives and it affects us with its values and ideals.

The architectural policy has been developed in close cooperation between a number of ministries and stakeholders. It launches 64 specific initiatives in different ministerial fields of responsibility. The policy was presented at an event in February 2014.

Some of the initiatives in "Putting People First" focus on strengthening citizens’ experience of architecture and their participation in democratic processes. Other initiatives focus on how architecture can promote sustainability and quality of life - environmentally, socially, and culturally. Other initiatives are focused on education and innovation, on architecture as a growth industry and on Danish architecture’s international potential.

Strategy for pre-school children's encounter with art and culture

Strategi for Små Borns Mode Med Kunst Og Kultur



Art and culture should be a part of children's and young people's life from a very early age. This is why these three separate strategies for pre-school children's, schoolchildren's and young people's encounter with art and culture have been presented. They are intended to be an inspiration for the adults who work with pre-school children, schoolchildren and young people. There are many common elements for the pre-school children and the schoolchildren, while the young people have greater needs for self-organisation and for using their own initiative. Children’s institutions, schools and youth education programmes are located under the auspices of the municipalities. It is, to a large extent, the municipalities that prioritise culture and children and young people's possibilities of development and learning. The three strategies provide new opportunities, which should be seen in connection with the opportunities for experiences for children and young people that already exist. They provide ideas for establishing more options that have been developed in individual municipalities with good results. Furthermore, for a number of the proposals, co-funding can be granted over a four-year period. The idea is to provide inspiration for a specific focus on children's and young people's encounter with art and to contribute to initiatives being launched and developed locally and then carried on under the auspices of the municipalities as their active culture policy for children and young people.

Doping in Denmark - A White Book



Welcome to Team Culture 2012

Velkommen til Team Culture 2012



The present crisis is about much more than economy, finances or debt. In reality it represents a much deeper crisis in our European values. To us – the members of Team Culture 2012 – it is clear that we as Europeans have lost our vision of the good society. The crisis shows us how materialism, selfishness and nationalism have overshadowed our fundamental cultural values of enlightenment, solidarity and humanism.

In this pamphlet you will find both the manifesto of Team Culture (“Turn To Culture” it is called) and a presentation of the team members and their individual cases. At the Team Culture website you will be able to find all the presentations from the June 6 session, as well as a lot more material.

It is the government’s intention that the architectural policy will contribute to the development of architecture as a Danish stronghold and to create an increasing awareness and debate about the significance, conditions and possibilities of architecture in Denmark. The policy is intended as a contribution to a broad and lively discussion on how to retain and further develop architectural quality as a central conduit of culture – with local, national and global perspectives for growth and welfare in Denmark. The government’s ambition is that the architectural policy should be seen in a long-term perspective.
