Goethe-Institut Nigeria Grants 2022 for Nigerian Artists and Cultural Experts

Goethe-Institut Nigeria Grants 2022 for Nigerian Artists and Cultural Experts

Deadline: February 15, 2022

Applications are open for the Goethe-Institut Nigeria Grants 2022. 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, 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.
