Intercult is a production and education unit based in Stockholm, Sweden. Founded in 1992 and re-structured in 1995, Intercult has grown to become a hub of local, regional and international cultural exchange. Internationally, the focus is on the Balkans and the Baltic Sea region, with large-scale co-productions and cultural policy gatherings as well as European urban mixed cultural experiences. Locally and nationally Intercult produces own work, arranges guest performances, distributes artists, works with audience development and influences cultural policy.
