India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow
August 18, 2012 - 00:00-January 13, 2013 - 00:00
18 August will mark the start of India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow, at which time some of India’s foremost artists, designers, filmmakers, authors, musicians, businesspeople, thinkers and scientists will descend upon the Danish capital and stay throughout the autumn.
India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow will give Danes an opportunity to get fresh insight into this fascinating country. Starting in August, some of India’s most prominent cultural and business figures will come to Denmark and reveal the current pulses in the fields of art, fashion, film, design, business and research. The event features exhibitions, festivals, concerts, conferences, seminars and workshops – and involves partners like ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, the CPH PIX film festival, the Royal Danish Theatre, the University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen Business School.
India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow is a collective term covering a number of cultural and business initiatives regarding modern India. The events have been initiated by the Holck-Larsen Foundation and developed in cooperation with ARKEN, CPH PIX, CPH DOX, the Royal Theatre, the University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen Business School, Aarhus University, the Confederation of Danish Industry, Asia House and the Danish Cultural Institute.
