Since its founding in 1983, the Scandinavian American Foundation of Georgia (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. 

"With the exchange of culture comes an understanding of others - even new perspectives on ourselves."
