The Goethe-Institut Nigeria Support and Connect Program 2024 for creatives

The Goethe-Institut Nigeria supports Nigerian solo artists, collectives, 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, literature and many more.
