Newsletter February 2024

Deutsch | English

Dear readers,

We are delighted to announce quite a few events in this months' newsletter. As well as some calls for applications both for teachers' trainings and artists. 

Apart from that we are glad to announce that we do now have a stage in the back of our institute. This will allow us to host more events at our venue and we are glad to have one theater event and two concerts happening in the first two weeks of Februrary to inaugurate it.
On the other hand we also have to say goodbye to our intern Paulina who assisted our team in the cultural department for the past 4,5 monts. We appreciate her engagement and wish her all the best of luck for her future.

As announced before, we are now also offering B2 intensive courses. The registration period for those has already started and will be open until Friday, the 2nd of February. The course will take place Monday-Friday 5:30-8pm.

Please also have a look at our website to see the Call for Applications for the Teachers' Training Programme 2024. German learners with no further experience in teaching can apply and get a paid opportunity to work with the Geothe-Institut.

If you want to know about some Calls for Applications regarding artistic projects, make sure to follow us on Social Media: Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

All the best,
The Goethe-Institut Kigali

HoAF event series: Leave no-one behind

The first talk of the "Leaving no-one behind" online-series from the "House of African Feminisms" started this Wednesday. Together with Edwige Dro and the author herself, we discussed Tolu Agbelusi's book "Locating Strongwoman". We thank all the participants for the lively dialogue and the inspiring contributions.

The House of African Feminisms is proud to announce a new digital programme: the talk series “Leaving no-one behind”. The series is centered around the theme of intersectionality in African Feminisms and will consist of six conversations throughout the year with African feminist scholars discussing the idea of intersectionality in an African context.
Follow the House of African Feminisms for announcements on further events.
