Robert Bosch Cultural Managers in the Arab World
Since October 2005 cultural managers from Germany have been sent to institutions in the Arab world. Locations so far have included Assiut in Egypt, Marrakesh in Morocco, Tripoli in Lebanon, Aden in Yemen, Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, and Aleppo in Syria. Currently, one cultural manager is active in Jeddah, Saudi-Arabia, and three cultural managers are active in the Nile Delta, Northern and Southern Upper Egypt.
Robert Bosch Cultural Managers are offered fellowships by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and are tasked to carry out cultural events and other initiatives in order to support the dialogue between Germany, Europe, and the Arab world. As regional institute for the Middle East and North Africa, the Goethe-Institut in Cairo supports and coordinates the cultural managers.
