The Danish Arts Foundation's (Statens Kunstfond) Project Support Committee for Visual Art has a vision to disseminate art both nationally and towards an international market. But what is the best approach to support artists? The Arts Foundation has developed a number of grants and programs over the years. They are all based on The Danish Arts Foundation’s understanding of the international ecosystem for the arts. This understanding as well as the grants and programs needed to be tested through the perspective of the users - the artists themselves.
We examined The Danish Arts Foundation’s international activities by focusing on the beneficiaries and their experiences and evaluations. Our analysis was based on qualitative interviews as well as a questionnaire among Danish artists. The results brought about deep insights regarding the value of the grants and programs from the perspective of the artists. The report served as documentation and a basis for further development of the committee’s continued international work.
