Welcome to Nuuk
Nuuk, Greenland’s capital, is a small city on the country’s southwest coast. Its large fjord system is known for waterfalls, humpback whales and icebergs. The waterfront is dotted with brightly colored houses against the backdrop of Sermitsiaq mountain.
Katuaq is a cultural venue for the whole of Greenland. It was opened on the 15th of February 1997 and is based in Nuuk.
Katuaq is like a musical instrument that can begin to play at any moment. During the day it’s full of dreams – at night it acts like a magnetic field, drawing people into the light. Katuaq is a magical venue whose architecture was inspired by waving northern lights, icebergs and the play of light on ice and snow. The building was designed by architects Schmidt, Hammer & Lassen of Århus Denmark.
Providing the public with excellent service and fantastic entertainment is the top priority for Katuaq staff. Katuaq activities include large and small concerts to suit all tastes, theatre for young and old alike, exhibitions of the works of famous and emerging artists, films for children, young people and adults, lectures, talks and much much more.
Katuaq is also an excellent venue for conferences and meetings. Plus, people get together at the centre’s oasis: Cafetuaq. Cafetuaq serves hot and cold meals and drinks and provides catering services including buffets and evening meals for functions held at Katuaq.
