Robert Bosch Cultural Managers in the Arab World
A joint program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Goethe-Institut
Since 2005 cultural managers from Germany have been sent to institutions in the Arab world. They carry out cultural events and other initiatives in order to support the dialogue between Germany, Europe, and the Arab world.
The cultural managers are offered fellowships and stay at their host institution for one year. Afterwards they can extend their stay to two or three years in total.
Currently, three cultural managers are active in the Nile Delta, Northern and Southern Upper Egypt. Previous locations are Assiut in Egypt, Marrakesh in Morocco, Tripoli in Lebanon, Aden in Yemen, Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, and Aleppo in Syria.
As regional institute for the Middle East and North Africa, the Goethe-Institut in Cairo supports and coordinates the cultural managers.
