The Goethe-Institut supports these processes, makes an active contribution to them and offers platforms and meeting places for artists, academics and journalists. It cooperates with partners and experts worldwide, strengthens innovative developments and tests new event formats.
The Goethe-Institut initiates and supports worldwide educational programmes for the further training of cultural professionals in the fields of cultural management and entrepreneurship, advises cultural institutions and networks participating stakeholders. It engages in the fields of cultural and digital education and focuses on topics being debated in the public, the media and science.
