Goethe-Institut offers opportunity for arts project funding

By CityLife Arts Writer
Those who would like to put up arts projects in the form of exhibitions, workshops and events in visual art, literature, music performance and film now have an opportunity to access funding through the in any part of South Africa have an opportunity to do so through the annual Goethe Project Space .
The Goethe-Institut South Africa is now accepting proposals for the annual Goethe-Institut Project Space (GPS) grant.
This call by Goethe-Institut in Johannesburg is for proposals for the 2021 edition of the Goethe-Institut Project Space (GPS), a multi-disciplinary roving project space support programme for South Africa. The programme supports work realised in any part of South Africa; ranging from workshops to exhibitions, events and performances; in any discipline including visual art, performing arts, film, music or combinations of afore mentioned forms.
GPS is envisioned as a non-commercial, artist-centered free platform, designed to support not only the artists and their projects, but also the many structures, spaces and festivals that currently exist and need partnerships of this nature in order to continue their work. GPS enables creators in all artistic disciplines to select the space and infrastructure they wish to work with. If awarded, a GPS grant would support both the hosting space and the project itself.
GPS signals a move to decentralize; supporting smaller, less institutional and non-commercial spaces, and privileging those situated outside of the large metropoles of South Africa. Practitioners will be able to produce their work locally with a partner of their choice and a GPS grant. An independent jury of arts professionals, selected by the Goethe-Institut for their expertise in the field of independent art projects, is responsible for the selection of projects that will be supported in 2021.
