International Relief Fund 2021
Maintaining and strengthening partnership structuresIn 2020, the Federal Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut initiated the International Relief Fund for Organisations in Culture and Education in response to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on cultural organisations abroad. With the support of other intermediary organisations, the relief fund was able to contribute to maintaining cultural partner’s structures abroad and at the same time to strengthen social diversity and local cultural life. The consortium partners of the International Relief Fund have agreed to continue the funding in 2021. The Federal Foreign Office has doubled the funds to around 6 million euros. This allowed the maximum individual funding to be increased to 30,000 euros and the funding period to be extended to 6 months. The Goethe-Institut is again in charge of the entire coordination of the fund. Other members of the consortium in 2021 are the S. Fischer Foundation and the Robert Bosch Foundation. The German Commission for UNESCO, the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program and the Siemens Foundation are participating with their own projects.
