Under the slogan ‘Together and in solidarity through this time,’ the Goethe Institute has launched the Kulturama digital platform through which you can attend events, find dates and support artists.

Although the cultural sector is among the most affected by the coronavirus pandemic, this crisis has unquestionably proven the importance of cultural activities in our lives.

In order to reach members of the public interested in cultural events, and to provide support to artists around the world, the Goethe Institute has launched the Kulturama digital platform to provide live or recorded performances and upload them to the site for free, thus opening a door for artists to be known internationally. In a safe and interactive manner, the platform also allows the public to make a financial contribution to the artists should they wish to do so.

On the occasion of the opening of the platform, secretary-general of the Goethe Institute Johannes Ebert said, “The cultural sector around the world faces existential challenges after the complete cessation of all cultural activities which has affected artists’ income. In a time of social separation, digitisation is the only way to reach the public, and we would like to present on the platform our solidarity with workers in cultural activities across borders, and we welcome all kinds of experimental and classical shows.”
