Key objectives of the measure:

Since 1991 the annual IMAGES Festivals has been presenting contemporary art and artists from developing countries rarely exposed in Denmark. Through the festivals the Danish population gets a first hand impression of how art is a vital factor of change and development in these countries. And by joint productions and exhibitions with likeminded Danish artists, the visiting artists get a life-long network and inspiration to develop their own art form. Quite often the participating artists gain more recognition in their own country after having been part of an international arts festival supported by the Danish government. In some cases it has also been a gateway to international recognition and an important step for free artistic expression.
