The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation

The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation was founded in autumn 2019 on the initiative of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. Its purpose is to promote cultural activities in Sweden. This is in line with a royal tradition in Sweden to support culture and the conviction that cultural activities are essential to an open, modern society. Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel wish to highlight this and demonstrate their long-term commitment with this Foundation. The initial focus will be on pursuing and developing the already-established sculpture project at Royal Djurgården and to add a permanent section as a complement to the temporary exhibitions.

With this sculpture project, the Foundation wants to make contemporary art available, since it has been found that experiencing art can be beneficial to the individual and to society at large. To enrich our shared environment with contemporary art is not only about creating timeless monuments, but also about inspiring discussions and contributing to a better quality of life for everyone in the longer perspective.

The Princess Estelle Cultural Foundation relies on private donations for its activities. A group of private patrons generously contributed the basic funding, making it possible to start the Foundation.
