Facebook Live debate hosted by Mette Bock

At this. Mette Bock will host and anchor a Facebook Live debate on cultural growth and entrepreneurship in the Nordic region – music, events, festivals, design, architecture and art – and how the special Danish “culture DNA” has become an international commercial export success. With input from three prominent panelists – musician and entrepreneur of “Nordic LA”, Kristian Riis, Director of Aarhus art museum ARoS, Erlend Høyersten, and Roskilde Festivals program director Signe Lopdrup, the Minister will investigate the origins and ingredients of this culture DNA, and what it takes from artists, culture workers and politicians to strengthen this DNA further. Is the world fed up by the Nordic cuisine, white minimalism and dark crime stories? What is on the Nordic culture plate these days?
