About the Award: Organising festivals, planning exhibitions, monitoring budgets and launching advertising campaigns: cultural managers shape the cultural scenes in the Arab region. While responsibilities have been expanding, practical experience alone is not always sufficient for success. Hence there is a strong demand for well-connected and adequately trained protagonists in the cultural scenes of the Arab region.

Therefore as part of the KULTURAKADEMIE Programme, the Goethe-Institut is offering a sixweek cultural management training for members of non-state cultural institutions from the Arab region between April 24 and June 2 2017 for the seventh time since 2011.

15 participants will be trained in Germany in fields like

  • Basics of Cultural Management
  • Cultural Policy
  • Communication and Marketing
  • Audience Development
  • Budgeting
  • Fundraising

Type: Training

Eligibility: “Independent”, non-state protagonists from various cultural fields from the Arab region (e.g. curators, (executive) employees of cultural centres, festival organizers, gallery owners as well as theatre and film professionals). Requirements for participation:

  • At least three years of relevant professional experience in the cultural sector
  • Very good command of English
  • Application with a specific project proposal

Selection: Participants will be selected by the respective Goethe-Institut in North Africa / Middle East (e.g. Goethe-Institut Tunis for applicants from Tunisia) and in consultation with the independent Arab cultural organisation Al Mawred Al Thaqafy (Culture Resource).

Number of Awardees: 15

Value of Scholarship: The Goethe-Institut is covering the costs for airfare, insurance and accommodation expenses as well as an allowance for the duration of stay in Germany.
