The Goethe-Institut pops up in Kansas City – for a year during the “Year of the German-American Friendship” in 2018/19. The Goethe Pop Up Kansas City presents events about German culture and language: we are preparing film showings, art exhibitions, concerts, guest performances of dance and theatre, readings, a language club or teacher trainings.
Also, drop by to speak German, read German newspapers or books and let your kids play with others in the German language. You can find us in the Crossroads as well as hosting events with our partners in the city. Be on the lookout for the logo of the Goethe Pop Up!
