A Not-for-Profit New York Organization Supporting Outstanding Young Artists from the German Speaking World


Our organization, established 30 years ago, has a unique and unifying mission. We showcase gifted young talent — musicians, painters, writers and filmmakers — from the German-speaking world and introduce them to the New York cultural community.

In sponsoring their performances here, the Forum gives these young people a US debut and a helping hand in their studies and careers. And the organization offers GF members the opportunity to see and support exceptionally talented Europeans who bridge the “Atlantic divide” through their art.

The German Forum hosts four events per year, three that are open to the public and one exclusively for members. Please take the time to learn more about the German Forum. We hope to see you at our next event.

Dear All,
As you are all painfully aware, the COVID 19 (coronavirus) is still spreading and social distancing has been advised. The German Forum is therefore postponing/cancelling all future events until the Federal/State/Local authorities have given the all clear.

We hope you are all safe and healthy and stay that way.

All the best und bis bald,
Barbara K Heming, President
