2 million Euro is the number of resources that the Irish government has allocated to promote Irish Arts and Culture in Germany in 2024. The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sport & Media, Catherine Martin T.D., and Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Defence, Micheál Martin T.D. announced this project on March 3th 2023.

The main aim is to deepen the cultural links between Ireland and Germany. The Countries which are already tight commercial partners, want to explore new sides of their relationship through a season of Culture and Art. This season will be a joint partnership between Culture Ireland and the Department of Foreign Affairs.

Ireland has started a long-term project with the aim to strengthen its global cultural presence and impact and places a strategic priority on arts and creativity as a key outward expression of our identity. This initiative aims to provide a special focus on the presentation of contemporary Irish arts in Germany.

Speaking today, Minister Catherine Martin said:

“I am pleased to launch the call for participation in the German season of Irish arts and culture in 2024. It is an opportune moment to renew our cultural connections with German cultural partners as we continue to rebuild the cultural ecosystem after the pandemic disruption. In particular, it is an exciting moment to present a broad range of contemporary Irish arts and culture to German audiences, who have a long history of enthusiastic engagement with Irish arts and culture. It is particularly encouraging to work in partnership with my colleague the Tánaiste on this project.”

The Irish Embassy in Berlin and Consulate general in Frankfurt are ready to co-work together with the common goal to plan and deliver the program in its accurate details. The special initiative will build on existing cultural connections and will focus on developing a program covering a range of priority regions and cities across artforms, working in partnership with local German practitioners, presenters and institutions.
