Be a part of Huset

Cultural Partnerships

Huset is a platform of multiple elements of culture, where volunteers and inspiring cultural environments get room to exchange experiences to create new and innovative events and activities.

We create together

The activities of the house are developed entirely or partially through co-creation. For us, this means that we create space for Copenhagen's cultural environments to unfold their potential within the framework of the house, with guidance and support from the house administration.

The cultural scene is constantly evolving with new ideas and art forms, which we strive to seek out and nurture. We see the house as a kind of laboratory or playground where cultural entrepreneurs can experiment.

The house administration and production team have many years of experience in cultural production, which can benefit completely new and untried actors. We provide technical and production assistance, offer professional facilities, and support PR and communication.

Co-creation is about developing the cultural ecosystem in the broadest sense, both on and off the stage.


You become a part of the community at HUSET

When you create events at HUSET, you simultaneously become a part of a cultural platform that works with co-creation and volunteering. You become involved in a network with other cultural organizers and entrepreneurs who collectively possess a wide range of skills from which one can learn.

HUSET also offers a variety of HUSET Sessions, where we invite different professionals to share relevant knowledge and experience.

As a cultural partner or volunteer, you will also receive a HUSET card, which provides benefits throughout the HUSET. With a HUSET card, you'll receive discounts in HUSET's bars, on concert tickets, at the cinema, as well as at Bastard Café and HUSET's restaurant.




A platform for the next generation of culture-creating activists.

What criteria and requirements does Huset have for a Cultural Partner?


Before we start a collaboration with a cultural partner, we have a number of requirements. 

We prioritise growth layer activities, young evironments and non-commercial cultural operators, who work within the buzzwords of Huset: growth layer, activism, non-commercial activities and populism. It's important that our activities match our vision, therefore we've developed a model called 'Kriteriehuset', where any new cultural partner can define there match with Huset or the opposite.

Other criteria

We also support following critirea:

  • Events must be public and open for everybody regardless sex, ethnicity, sexuality or religion.
  • Events can't be party-political.
  • We strive to support diversity and therefore the entrance fee must be at a cost where everyone has the opportunity to participate.
  • Huset is a co-creator of the project. Huset's guidelines for design and expression must be followed on printed material and online. We will review the guidelines with you at an introductory meeting.

If the event follows with extra costs for Huset, we will charge a matching payment. An extra cost can be related to special needs for audio equipment, cleaning, an event that doesn't match the opening hours of Huset, etc. When we agree on a collaboration, we make a concrete contract and discuss the economic circumstances.

Growing from idea to event

We are always ready to help your event, project or idea become a reality, no matter where the idea are in the process. We can help on several levels, depending on how large your resources and/or network are.

It very important for us, that you remain the owner of the idea or event, and we contribute to make your project a reality. Our focus is how you collect as much experience as possible and the result is hopefully independence and confidence in producing cultural projects.

We help with:

  • Idea development
  • Planning
  • Fundraising
  • Event management
  • Technical assistance
  • PR
