The Carlsberg Foundation is kicking off 2022 by opening the doors to the newly restored Carlsberg Academy. The restoration has been carried out by some of Denmark’s most highly skilled architects, conservators and craftspeople, who have carefully returned Brewer J.C. Jacobsen’s private villa to how it looked when it was built in the mid-1800s. To mark the restoration, the Carlsberg Foundation and Strandberg Publishing are bringing out a book with the title ‘Will, Works and Values – J.C. Jacobsen’s villa at Carlsberg’.
At a meeting just held, the Carlsberg Foundation’s Board of Directors has elected its new chair. Professor Majken Schultz is the new chairwoman and will take over the position as of 1 January 2022.
