Goethe-Institut Grants for Nigerian Artists

Deadline: February 15, 2022

Are you an Artist (Dance, Photography, Music, Theatre, Visual arts, Films,)? Or do you know an artist who is based in Nigeria? The Goethe-Institut Nigeria is supporting Nigerian based artists and cultural experts in implementing their projects.

For the past years, the Goethe-Institut Nigeria has supported a wide range of projects created and implemented by Nigerian artists and initiatives in various art forms: Music, contemporary dance, photography, films (documentary), theatre, visual arts and many more. Goethe-Institut also supports artists, who are invited to festivals in Germany or on the African continent but do not have enough funding to join.

They regard this support as a very crucial and important one in order to give young and upcoming people in the cultural landscape of Nigeria a chance to be heard and seen.


This year, the Support and Connect Initiative is taking entries from these three categories of projects:

  • Larger scale projects (with maximum budget of 5,000 Euros)
  • Regular entries for first time projects (with maximum budget of 2,000 Euros)
  • Entries for project’s sustainability i.e. recurring projects that already had funding from the Goethe-Institut (with maximum budget of 2,000 Euros)
