Collecting Europe: Onka Kular & Common Initiative Collecting Europe © Goethe-Institut London
In the area of Arts and Culture we engage with current social and cultural tendencies emerging in Europe and beyond.
 
We initiate collaborations with our partners in the British and German cultural scenes and work closely with them on interdisciplinary projects in film, visual arts, music, dance, literature and theatre.
 
At our institutes in Glasgow and London we host many events throughout the year, such as film-screenings, readings, workshops, talks and discussions. Additionally, we organise artist residencies in collaboration with selected partners.
