Description


Organisation

The Goethe-Institut, as the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany, brings the multifaceted image of Germany to the world. It provides access to German language, culture and society and promotes international cultural cooperation.  We promote the study of German abroad and encourage international cultural exchange. We also foster knowledge about Germany by providing information on its culture, society and politics.

With our network of Goethe-Instituts, Goethe Centres, cultural societies, reading rooms and exam and language learning centres we have played a central role in the cultural and educational policies of Germany for over 50 years.

The arts, culture, and education play decisive roles in the constitution of societies and in coping with current global and regional challenges. Artists, persons in the cultural sector, and media representatives are seismographs as well as shapers of social change. Yet in order to be heard and able to act they need a self-confident voice, a professional structural basis, and a sound network.

The Goethe-Institut contributes to strengthening cultural infrastructures and the arts sector in its host countries, improves framework conditions for the arts and culture, and supports the development of education- and knowledge-based societies. The educational programmes train cultural workers and advise cultural institutions. They network the stakeholders not only with initiatives and institutions in Germany, but also with one another. In addition to collaborating with cultural institutions, television stations and schools in Germany, the initiative also works with development cooperation organizations, with universities, and with government ministries.

All of the advanced training programmes are designed together with the local stakeholders and institutions and link artistic and curatorial subject matter with technical and organizational aspects of cultural sector practice. The autonomy of the arts and culture is reflected, respected, and is correlated with social as well as economic challenges.
