The Goethe-Institut Nigeria supports 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 don't 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.

His angry father sends him to the Imperial High Court in Wetzlar. Goethe, who dreams of a career as a poet and has to digest the rejection of his play Götz von Berlichingen, falls in love with Charlotte Buff. But her father has betrothed promised her to another man.
