The cultural house of Greenland

Katuaq means drumstick in Greenlandic but it is also the name of the cultural house of Greenland placed in the centre of Nuuk.

The beautiful house opened in 1997 and its characteristic structure is much inspired by the arctic northern lights. Since 1997 the house has supplied both local Greenlanders and foreign guests with experiences of immeasurable artistic quality.

Katuaq holds a large and minor hall and a café shaped respectively as a semicircle, a square and a triangle.

"The place also houses concerts in all sizes, film performances, conferences, theatre and large public events. And of course, art!"

Katuaq is a popular show room for artists from all over the world, especially from the Nordic and Greenland. Every year about 10 to 12 exhibitions are displayed on the walls of the foyer and the café. Most of them are art exhibitions but some also have an informative content and purpose.

If one should be interested in what is new in the artistic field in Greenland, it would be a good idea to visit Katuaq and see the changing exhibitions. In the summertime the house holds a yearly art exhibition. It is reserved for artists from Greenland and thereby gives a novel concept of what the artists are working on.
