The Goethe-Institut Nigeria 2021 Support & Connect Fund for Nigerian Artists and Cultural Experts Project

Deadline: 24th February 2021

The Goethe-Institut Nigeria 2021 Support & Connect Fund for Nigerian Artists and Cultural Experts Project

The Goethe-Institut Nigeria supports Nigerian 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, (documentary) films, theatre, visual arts and many more. Goethe-Institut also supports artists, who are invited to German festivals but do not have enough funding to join. We 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. Especially in the current COVID-19 crisis, this support is particularly important.

In order to facilitate the application procedure and to make it more transparent for all artistic and cultural initiatives in the country, we invite interested applicants to send us their project application if they would like to enter into a professional partnership with the Goethe-Institut Nigeria.
