In cooperation with the Ministry of Culture of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the International Visitors Programme of the NRW KULTURsekretariat brings cultural journalists, mediators, politicians, curators and other disseminators from around the world together with the cultural scene in NRW.


Under the motto “NRWho? NRWhere? NRWhat?”, around 100 international guest have been visiting North Rhine-Westphalia since 2009, and made new contacts.

 
Apart from attending performances, exhibitions or concerts, the participants also gain insight into the cultural life on the Rhine, Ruhr and Lippe.


Strong interest in future collaboration with artists, companies or cultural institutions from NRW is created through personal encounters and intense mediation by the NRW KULTURsekretariat.


Moreover, reports in foreign media describe NRW as a state of culture and emphasise its attractiveness as an international business location.


Since 2014, individual trips of foreign visitors to develop already announced cooperation projects with partners in NRW are offered as well and international curator networks are being initiated and supported.


In 2018, a total of 15 programmes were realised on the subjects of photography, dance, theatre, art in the public sphere, short film and jazz music. On moderated themed trips, such as for example on new and improvised music in NRW, contacts between actors from art, culture and creative economy could moreover be procured and moderated.


The year 2019 is dedicated to the tenth anniversary year of the “International Visitors Programme”. This is the occasion for an alumni meeting, not only to review more than ten years of international cultural work and about 170 visitors programmes, but also to initiate a dialogue between alumni and partners, especially in the light of pressing political issues and developments in Europe and all over the world.


In addition, numerous visitors programmes have again been planned for 2019 and invitations have been issued to foreign creative artists to visit NRW.


Furthermore, it is intended to continue the cooperation with “Transfer International”, which has been dedicated to the exchange between Greece and NRW since autumn 2018.


Over the next few years, the programme will also focus even more on the nurturing of international and intercultural networks. The Visitors Programme cooperates with the State of NRW as well as its creative artists and cultural offices, with the Goethe Institute and cultural organisations abroad.
