The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach.
We promote and foster international cultural cooperation. The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles operates on a partnership basis.
For individual projects, as for longer-term joint ventures, we connect with stakeholders in the cultural scene – institutions, organizations, companies, people in and from Southern California and Arizona, Germany, and other countries (in particular our European neighbors). Often a project involves several partners working together. The Goethe-Institut organizes its programs proactively, on a long-term, sustainable basis.
It is of special importance to us to jointly develop ideas and create a dialogue between the stakeholder from the outset. Events and projects achieve their best results when they are planned cooperatively, starting with the original idea and proceeding via engaged discussions on the different formats and types of events, on the selection of artists and speakers, to the financing, scheduling, and organization.We can then benefit from shared workloads and implementing projects together. Consequently, all parties interested in working with us should contact us as early as possible (about one year in advance) so that mutual interests, content development and internal processes can be taken into account.
The Goethe-Institut cannot make financial contributions to projects which have already been planned without our participation.
