DIVA Artist-in-residence program


The Visual Arts Centre in Copenhagen

DIVA (Danish International Visiting Artists Programme) is a Danish artist-in-residence programme intended primarily to develop the Danish arts scene through the dialogue arising from contact between foreign artists and exponents of the arts in Denmark.

The DIVA program makes it possible for artistic and cultural institutions, local authorities and other professional actors in the field to invite foreign artists and artistic groups to stay in Denmark for an extended period – typically 1-3 months.

Those invited must be professional artists in one of the genres covered by the Danish Arts Council: visual arts, music, literature, and performing arts. Artists not working within these four branches of the arts (i.e. architects, designers, film directors, etc.) are not eligible unless their work is deemed to contribute to the development of the genres covered by the programme.


Living space is provided.
