In 2022 the United States Government and the Government of the Faroe Islands signed a Partnership Declaration providing a framework for increased cooperation between the U.S. and the Faroe Islands in several fields including culture. In 2024 the Faroe Islands will open a diplomatic representation in Washington.
The Faroese Days in New York consist of a string of cultural events such as visual arts, music, cinematography, literature and gastronomy held in the Scandinavian House – the Nordic Centre in New York. The Faroese Days are a collaboration between the Government of the Faroe Islands, the American-Scandinavian Foundation and Visit Faroe Islands organized in corporation with Faroese cultural institutions.
The aim of the Faroese Days is to present contemporary Faroese arts and culture to American audiences and potential partners to pave the way for a cultural exchange between the U.S. and the Faroe Islands.
