Video: The Nordic House in Tórshavn

The Nordic House is a cultural institution under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers. The house was built in 1983 and has ever since been active as a Nordic cultural venue with a diverse programme which includes all art forms and engages all age and interest groups.

The Nordic House’s primary remit as an open and vibrant cultural venue is to showcase Nordic art and culture in the Faroe Islands and to raise awareness about Faroese art and culture across the Nordic region. The strategies for fulfilling this remit are devised in collaboration with other Nordic houses and institutions as well as Faroese authorities, cultural institutions and societies. By maintaining this broadly anchored cultural collaboration, the Nordic House contributes to the Nordic people’s sense of togetherness and mutual understanding and a stronger cohesiveness of the Nordic welfare states.

The Nordic House is governed by a non-executive board of five members of which one is Faroese and the remaining four from various Nordic countries. Additionally, the house has an advisory board with fifteen members appointed by the Faroese Ministry of Culture. The executive authority for the Nordic House lies with the Nordic Council of Ministers.
