Denmark-Nepal Culture and Development Programme

Outside Kathmandu there are few creative and cultural activities that can foster innovation, income-possibilities and attract Nepali youth. With this programme we support organisations, artists, and cultural entrepreneurs that can contribute to widen the access to cultural activities and create job opportunities for young people.

Time Frame: 2014-2016
Budget: DKK 7.4 million


The Danish Centre for Culture and Development (CKU) is mandated to implement the programme in close collaboration with the Embassy of Denmark.
