About the project
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 fellows convey an image of contemporary Germany in the host country through innovative projects and raise the interest of the local population in German culture. They establish collaborations between Germany and their location as well as within the region. The fellowship awarded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung gives fellows the opportunity to obtain further practical qualifications in international cultural management and to distinguish themselves in the area of international cultural exchange.
