"With the exchange of culture comes an understanding of others - even new perspectives on ourselves." Scandinavian American Foundation of Georgia (SAFG) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the exchange of educational, cultural and amateur athletic endeavors between the countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the State of Georgia.

Since its founding in 1983, the SAFG has acquainted Georgians with Scandinavian cultural expressions, such as art, crafts, film, music, literature, as well as culinary arts and amateur athletics. Art exhibits and musical performers from Georgia have also been co-sponsored
to Scandinavia.

We invite you to visit Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Georgia, and participate in our Cultural Exchange Program and Educational Events.
