The Goethe-Institut in Sub-Saharan Africa is working on a project called "AfriComics". The aim of this project is to promote and encourage the use of comics/graphic novels as a means of artistic, social and cultural expression. For this purpose, we plan workshops with African and German comic artists as well as a publication. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, physical encounters cannot yet take place, so we are first starting to create a video library that future workshop participants can use to prepare themselves independently.
The videos will be presented on a self-learning platform to prepare future workshop participants.
Possible topics could be:
The Goethe-Institut is the Federal Republic of Germany’s cultural institute, active worldwide. We promote the study of German abroad and encourage international cultural exchange.
We search for creative minds to produce short videos. These videos will be presented on a self-learning platform in order to prepare future workshop participants. Possible topics could be:

All contributors are required to submit an application via email as one PDF document. The application should include the following documents:
