“Transgressing boundaries” is the motto of the 2018 course programme. 18 courses - 17 in Hohensalzburg Fortress and one in the Kiefer quarry in Fürstenbrunn – take diverse approaches to topical questions of art production, encompassing all media and going beyond them. Thus students may make their way from painting to sound [song], from performance to installation, from photography to film and video, or they may concentrate entirely on stone sculpture or miniature painting, or combine a number of artistic approaches in explorations culminating in a shared polyphonic city walk.

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.

The project idea has to be already developed and has reached a certain level of preparation
An invitation to a German festival is already issued by the organisers
The project has to be implemented in the second half of the year 2018, latest by December 10, 2018
Only completely and correctly filled out application forms will be considered
