“RESONANCE – Platform for Cultural and Creative Industries” is a programme initiated by the Goethe-Institut network in France to promote the cultural and creative industries in Europe. To mark the sixtieth anniversary of the Élysée Treaty in 2023, it will bring together a new generation of young creatives from Germany and France to work in tandem with funding from the Franco-German Youth Office as well as numerous other partners such as the Franco-German Cultural Council, the Franco-German Committee for the Cultural and Creative Industries, the Franco-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Institut français of Germany and the Fördernetzwerk Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaft (Cultural and Creative Industries Support Network), thus facilitating innovative Franco-German collaborations at the interface of culture, business and technology. The cross-border initiative creates a platform that opens up new resonance spaces between Germany and France and strengthens forward-looking modes of European cooperation.


This programme is aimed at a young generation of creatives in Germany – from students to freelancers to founders – who want to get to know the French creative scene as part of a Franco-German tandem and to establish their idea, project or company in France. As part of this international programme, creatives from Germany and France will be paired into tandems at the various Goethe-Institut locations throughout France and supported over the course of one year. The tandem collaboration can range from targeted networking, peer-to-peer interaction and knowledge building to the development of a joint project. In addition to financial support of €5,000 per tandem, participants will benefit from personal mentoring, interdisciplinary networking meetings with established figures in the creative industries in France and Germany and events in several French cities.
