The Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture (NDPC) is a governmental initiative which brings together national authorities, practitioners from cultural and creative industries (CCI) and experts. It works towards a stronger, more competitive and more resilient CCI sector that contributes significantly to the sustainable development of the Northern Dimension region (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, the Russian Federation* and Sweden).

NDPC implements project activities, offers networking and professional development opportunities to creative professionals and provides valuable insights for policy development to national authorities.

Northern Europe has a rich cultural heritage, as well as national and linguistic diversity and varied cultural and artistic production. The region also has a great deal of experience in cultural cooperation and exchange, as well as numerous professional networks in all sectors of society.
