Cultural exchange thrives through personal encounters. The Goethe-Institut and its partners offer varied opportunities in residencies, trainings and workshops in Germany, in India or online. Recent opportunities are listed on this page.


In the Middle Ages, the group of cities of Mainz, Worms and Speyer formed a unique, important center of Jewish life in Central Europe under the abbreviation SchUM, and in 2020 it submitted an application for inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Now it invites applications for an international artistic scholarship program.

The fellowship is granted for a period of four to six weeks and is to be taken up in the period October 2021 to February 2022 (Starting date must be in 2021). Communication will be in English or German.
