The 2018 - 2020 Denmark Fellowship Program is currently in progress. Please check back periodically for renewed program availability.

Meet the current Fellows

The Denmark Fellowship Program provides access to ISPA's extensive international network of arts professionals to three mid-career leaders from Denmark's performing arts community. Participants join the ISPA membership and attend the ISPA Congresses in New York and Leeuwarden where they engage in the development and exchange of ideas with leaders from some of the world's most significant arts organizations, increase their industry knowledge and resources through educational opportunities, and share their experience with their communities.
