India Today - Copenhagen Tomorrow
India Today - Copenhagen Tomorrow is a massive Indian-Danish culture project. The project aims to acquaint Danes with modern India and its incredible dynamics.
India has an immense culture and is a technological tiger with an enormous future potential.
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.
The Indian influence
Every sixth person in the world is Indian. More than 1.3 billion people live in the world’s biggest democracy, and over 300 million Indians have a living standard that corresponds with Denmark’s. India is slated to become the world’s next superpower by virtue of its explosive economic growth and the fact that its population has many young and few old people.
India as a cultural powerhouse
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 opens on 18 August with a major exhibition at ARKEN, presenting Indian contemporary art and fashion. The project also includes fellowships and exchange programmes – and will ultimately lead to the the establishment of a Danish cultural institute in India.
India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow is a culture and business campaign that aims at strengthening the ties between Denmark and India. It will be the most wide-ranging event about India ever held and will focus on art, fashion, design, film, dance, science and business.
18 August 2012 – 13 January 2013.
