The Goethe-Institut is the cultural institute of the Federal Republic of Germany with a global reach. We promote knowledge of the German language abroad and foster international cultural cooperation. Our cultural and educational programmes encourage intercultural dialogue and enable cultural involvement. They strengthen the development of structures in civil society and foster worldwide mobility. We are partners for all who actively engage with Germany and its culture, working independently and without political ties. The Goethe-Institut Johannesburg's Information Department focuses on a variety of different approaches from gaming, hacking, open access, digital library solutions, cultural and creative industries, new concepts for libraries and reading promotion. Furthermore, we encourage exchanges between information specialists and publishers in South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and Germany. Our Cultural Programmes Department focuses on a variety of different artistic approaches from the visual arts to drama, dance, literature, film, gaming and others. Our goal is to support the local cultural scenes and strengthen pan-African dialogue through the arts.
