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.
Target group and requirements:
Artists and cultural initiatives (no individuals) that work professionally and have at least 3 years of experience
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
The initiative has to be registered and has a bank account
Creative Producers International is a new world-wide talent development programme led by Watershed, which will provide fifteen Creative Producers from across the globe with the skills they need to become the city change-makers of the future.
Successful participants will gain the skills and abilities to have a new kind of conversation with city leaders and keep art at the heart of decision making. They will transform how their community engages with city futures and deliver ground-breaking projects at the intersection of creativity, technology and public space.
The result will be a diverse group of people and cities who influence, challenge and support each other, and have sustainable routes for sharing their knowledge and innovation all over the world. The programme will run from the beginning of October 2017 to the end of December 2019.
The successful Producers will receive a £2,000 bursary every year for three years plus travel, accommodation and per diems to attend events in Bristol and Tokyo, a £5,000 ideas development fund, training, mentoring, support throughout and lots more.
