Deadline: 1 March 2019

The Goethe-Institut Nigeria is seeking applications for its Art and Culture Projects 2019 to support Nigerian artists and cultural experts in implementing their projects.

For the last 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. Goethe-Institut Nigeria regards 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.
