The Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta's cultural program seeks to fulfill its mission by hosting events portraying a positive image of modern Germany and German speaking countries. This is done through lectures, concerts, foreign films, theatre productions, and exhibits. In addition, we host Franco-German and European events in partnership with the Alliance Française d'Atlanta and European Consulates from all over the southeast region.
