Our cultural programme as well as the information work of the media centre aim to mediate a modern and complete picture of all fields of German life.
We see ourselves as partners of other Namibian cultural institutions and organisations, joining forces in professional partnership and dialogue. Our services are available to anybody interested in Germany, the German language or the German culture.
The socio-political interests resulting from a specific politico-cultural relationship between Namibia and Germany are one of the challenges of our work. Focusing on innovative concepts which ought to foster mutual understanding, we put special emphasis on cultural exchange in the fields of art, science and media.
We promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. We convey a comprehensive picture of Germany by providing information on Germany's cultural, social and political life.
Through our network of Goethe-Institutes, Goethe Centres, cultural societies and reading rooms, alongside our examination and language learning centres, we perform the principal tasks of cultural and educational policy abroad. We work in partnership with public and private cultural bodies, the German federal states and municipalities, and the corporate sector.
We draw on the rich variety of our many-faceted open society and Germany's lively culture. We combine the experiences and conceptions of our partners in Germany and abroad with our professional skills and engage in a dialogue rooted in partnership. In doing so, we function as service providers and partners for everyone taking an active interest in Germany and the German language and culture, and act independently with no political affiliations.
We face the cultural policy challenges of globalisation and develop innovative concepts for a world made more human through mutual understanding, where cultural diversity is seen as an asset.
