Germany's Goethe-Institut Accepting Applications for International Coproduction Fund

Thursday, October 4, 2018   (0 Comments)

Goethe-Institut, a German cultural association with over 150 regional offices located worldwide, promoting the study of the German language abroad and encouraging international cultural exchange and relations, is accepting applications for its International Coproduction Fund. This funding is intended for coproductions by artists in the fields of theatre, dance, music and performance art, in which hybrid and interdisciplinary formats and the use of digital media may be key components. The target group comprises professional artists and ensembles abroad and in Germany, which demonstrably lack sufficient resources to realize their coproduction project on their own.

Criteria

  • Expected artistic quality of the project
  • Innovative potential in the form and content of the collaboration
  • Relevance of the participating artists in their respective scenes
  • Budget indicating project partners’ own contributions and a solid financial plan
  • A balanced project partnership, not dominated by one partner
  • At least one performance to be given in one of the participating countries, ideally in other countries as well
  • Preference will be given to projects between German and non-European partners, especially from transition countries
  • The project’s potential to contribute significantly to current social discourse
  • Applicants should be prepared to participate in an event demonstrating the exchange of coproduction knowhow at the end of the agreed grant period
  • No applications for guest performance funding
  • The projects submitted should embrace only the performing arts (no outright film or exhibition projects)

Application Deadline: October 15, 2018
