Valby Kulturhus

Valby Kulturhus is a true Mecca for the creative and artistic spirit, offering everything from ceramics and dancing, to theatre and drawing.

It offers education, exploration and expression for young and old alike, and supports non-profit creative projects.

What we are about

Located in the heart of Valby near the old bus terminus at Toftegårds Plads, Valby Kulturhus is the cultural centre of the neighbourhood. Here, you can find cultural activities year-round to fit any taste. The building itself used to house the paint factory Stelling dating back to the 1900’s, and its many square meters offer a wide spectrum of cultural activities. Furthermore, visitors can book and rent the facilities for meetings, workshops and private gatherings of anything from 20 up to 200 participants. Facing the square at Toftegårds Plads, you can enjoy a meal or refreshment at Café Incita, a social-economic café often offering cosy communal dining for a good cause.

What we have to offer

Valby Kulturhus is home to several creative and artistic activities with a focus on learning and exploration. Here, children can learn to dance, act, play music, and adults can learn how to do ceramics or croquis. Valby Kulturhus is an internationally minded environment with English as a shared language, and the different communities are no strangers to welcoming international users. For instance, on Thursdays you can join Blues Dancing Copenhagen for a night on the floor in a social and relaxed environment. If you are looking for hands-on creative work, you can visit the shared, open access and shared tool workshop Copenhagen FabLab, which is permanently housed on the fourth floor.

Furthermore, throughout the year, Valby Kulturhus hosts several English-based events.

How people can get involved

Valby Kulturhus is home to several volunteer communities which welcome new members on an ongoing basis. The fourth floor houses several creative communities, including a ceramics workshop, the open atelier and digital communities, such as Copenhagen FabLab and Digitaliseringsværkstedet København.

If you are a practising artist or creator, you are able to do your project at Valby Kulturhus, and for non-profit projects you can use the facilities free of charge.
