Culture Ireland and the Department of Foreign Affairs are inviting expressions of interest from artists, ensembles, and cultural organisations to participate in an Irish season in Germany in 2024. The initiative aims to showcase the contemporary Irish arts and culture across Germany.
The joint partnership between Culture Ireland and the Department of Foreign Affairs called Ireland in Germany 2024 is intended to deepen Ireland’s cultural relationship with Germany, a key partner in Europe. The objective of Global Ireland 2025 is to strengthen Ireland’s global cultural presence and impact, with a strategic priority on arts and creativity as a key expression of its identity.
Culture Ireland and the Department of Foreign Affairs have allocated a minimum of €2m for this initiative to present a diverse, contemporary, high-quality program across artistic disciplines in various locations across Germany, including intimate to high-profile venues, institutions, and festivals, to develop German audiences for Irish arts.
