The ifa (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations) offers internship funding that is open to young cultural professionals from the Islamic world’s arts sector wishing to work in a German art organization like ours:
“With its CrossCulture Internships funding program, the ifa fosters intercultural exchange and the strengthening of networks between Germany and Islamic world.
The program enables internships for young professionals and volunteers from the participating countries and from Germany. International experience is gained and intercultural competence developed through work stays in another culture. CrossCulture internships open up and strengthen the exchange between people, institutions and cultures and thus enable an enhanced partnership between Germany and Islamic countries.
Organization of the internship:
The internships will be supplemented by a tailor-made framework program – for example, accompanying events or individual visits– during the stay in the host country.
The CrossCulture internships are characterized by the fact that they can be individually adapted to the requirements and wishes of the scholarship holders both in terms of content and organization. Thanks to this personalized and needs-oriented concept, they are very well-suited in supporting the program participants to acquire professional and intercultural competence in their specific area of work and thus extending their ability to engage in dialogue.”
The application deadline is Dec. 6th 2015.
