Rent 'Frame'

Let us FRAME your next event!

Are you looking for a unique space to host your next event, exhibition, DJ set, video screening or temporary artist meet-up? Or maybe you need a temporary workspace, dark room or showroom for your next project?

Our multi-purpose venue FRAME on Refshaleøen is a flexible construction that is useful for many purposes. We use it each year for our festival in June, but we think that it deserves to live all year and host many more events!

If you think that FRAME could be the spot for your next event, exhibition or creative project don’t hesitate to contact us – we look forward to hearing your ideas and help you realize your event vision!

Rentage of Iron cages - and racks

Copenhagen Photo Festival has various exhibition stands primarily suitable for outdoor use. You have the opportunity to rent them outside of the festival season. Please contact us at if you’re interested in learning more about the rental options.

To the right there are some examples of the use of iron cages for an installation at the Youth People’s Meeting (Ungdommens Folkemøde) and iron stands for Copenhagen Photo Festival 2023, showcasing an exhibition by the Danish School of Media and Journalism.

Do you need a flexible and affordable event or project space?

During our festival FRAME hosts our Festival Center with lots of exhibitions, events and not least a rooftop terrasse with a spectacular view. The building is sustainably made of former ship containers, which makes it easy to design and tailor the indoor and outdoor spaces to suit your specific needs.

In the heart of Refshaleøen

FRAME is located in the heart of Refshaleøen – Copenhagen’s new cultural hot spot – right in the sweet spot between Michelin-starred restaurant Alchemist, Copenhagen Contemporary, Lille Bakery and Reffen – Copenhagen Street Food.

An innovative and sustainable building

FRAME is a two-storey building, designed and built by the Copenhagen Photo Festival team via a sustainable and innovative process made of recycled shipping containers and is located on the former berth of the B&W shipyard for building large ship hulls. Its rooftop allows you to have a 360° view over Refshaleøen and Copenhagen.

Exhibition space, artist studio or DJ venue?

With the Copenhagen skyline as a backdrop, we provide the opportunity to explore new horizons. FRAME and its surroundings are the perfect setting for a wide range of events.

If you are looking for a unique setting for your next event, exhibition, or workshop, Frame and its surrounding urban wilderness might be the perfect setting for you!
