The Goethe-Institut set up this grant to partner with art professionals working in South Africa, who collaborate with the various spaces to engage with communities through the different art disciplines. This is the fifth Goethe-Institut Project Space (GPS) call since 2016. GPS has supported 20 projects in Cape Town, Kimberly, Durban, Joburg, O’kiep, Bloemfontein and more.

The Goethe-Institut in Johannesburg calls 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.
