Mental and structural changes in the arts sector based on equality, inclusiveness and UNESCO’s convention for cultural diversity

DCAI encourages and assists the cultural institutions and municipalities in Denmark to be inclusive of Denmark’s minoritiy groups from non-Danish speaking backgrounds.

This video is an excerpt of a key note speech, 'Reflections on the role, responsibility and significance of the cultural institutions in the democratic society', by Niels Righolt, held at the network-seminar 'Take pART' on 27 October 2011 at Nikolaj, Copenhagen Contemporary Art Center, in Denmark.

About the Danish Centre for Arts & Interculture
The goal of DCAI is to enable full and equal participation of individuals and communities from all origins in the continuing evolution and shaping of all aspects of Danish cultural life and to assist in the elimination of any barriers to such participation.

Cultural diversity
DCAI promotes cultural diversity by strengthening the capacity of cultural industries to produce and distribute goods and services and helping them gain access to domestic and international markets. 

The centre aims to cooperate with any organisations involved in the arts sector or other creative industries such as music venues, publishing companies, theatres, cinemas, multimedia producers, arts studios, museums, and traders in crafts and design.

DCAI supports initiatives that can make society as a whole benefit and take inspiration from the interchange of ideas and techniques among individual artists from diverse backgrounds.

Access to knowledge
DCAI’s approach encourages and aims to improve access to knowledge between cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue in the context of globalisation. DCAI (in Danish: CKI) has established and continuously expands a web portal for this purpose, currently only in Danish, at www.cki.dk.

Through activities such as seminars, conferences, workshops and meetings, DCAI gives special attention to building the capacities of stakeholders and decision-makers in the management of cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue.
