Aarhus and Central Denmark Region is a region with a strong cultural profile. This is the result of a long and determined cultural-political effort and a strong collaboration between the city’s cultural players and the municipality. The region’s cultural collaboration created as part of the European Capital of Culture 2017 has carried on as European Region of Culture, continuing to strengthen European cultural connections and partnerships as well as development possibilities for cultural players across the region. In Aarhus and in Central Denmark Region, we have strong businesses, industry clusters, talent and incubation environments, and interplay between culture, education and research. We have a strong focus on the development of the digital visual industries, including film and game production as well as the music and sound-industry. We prioritize strengthening the conditions for sustainable growth in the creative industries, and we will explore the creative industries’ potential in relations to other welfare agendas, for instance health, social cohesion and climate change.

Central-Denmark is represented by the city of Aarhus in the DC-Network.
