The work of the Goethe-Institut in the US is based on collaboration with partners. From individual projects to more long-term cooperation, we affiliate ourselves with advocates on the cultural scene (institutions, organizations, companies, and persons) in the US, Germany and other countries, particularly European ones. Frequently, many partners are involved in one project.
We place great value in developing ideas collaboratively and starting a dialogue from the beginning. Experience shows that successful events and projects are the result of collaborative planning and the fair division of responsibilities amongst partners - from the original idea to discussions about appropriate formats to the selection of artists, ensembles and speakers to financing and organization. We therefore ask anyone interested in collaborating with us to communicate their interests to us at the earliest possible stage. This will allow for a timely exchange and mutual development of content as well as assure that our internal planning cycles (which, admittedly, can be somewhat drawn-out at the Goethe-Institut) be taken into consideration. Financial contributions to projects that have been planned without our collaboration are not possible.
