Goethe-Institut Project Space (GPS)

, South Africa

Goethe-Institut Project Space (GPS) is a multi-disciplinary roving project space that follows on GoetheOnMain, which was based at Arts On Main in Johannesburg from May 2009 to November 2016. The new programme will support work realised all over South Africa ranging from workshops to exhibitions, events and performances; including visual art, literature, film, music, dance and theatre projects.

The new project signals a move to decentralise, supporting smaller spaces, and also those situated outside of the large metropoles. Practitioners will be able to produce their work locally with a partner of their choice and a GPS grant.

Similarly to the GoetheOnMain project that preceded it, a public call for proposals is presided over by an independent jury of arts professionals, who make the project selection.
