How have cultural relations between the UK and Germany evolved over time? The Goethe-Institut and the British Council are Germany’s and the UK’s official cultural agencies, building connections, understanding and trust through arts and culture, education and language learning.

In this episode of #StayingConnected, a joint podcast series by the British Embassy Berlin and the German Embassy London, Paul Smith, Director of the British Council in Germany, and Katharina von Ruckteschell-Katte, Director of the Goethe-Institut in London, speak about the history and future of cultural relations and the impact that the UK's exit from the EU and the global pandemic had on their work. They discuss cultural and linguistic diversity, touch upon questions of identity and highlight the importance of bringing people together for a shared experience of arts and culture.
