The Goetheanum offers a full-year study program, "Foundations of Anthroposophy," in English! (The full-time study overseen by the General Anthroposophic Section, is also offered in Spanish/Portuguese and German.) Students from around the world, of various backgrounds and ages, come for an academic year of Anthroposophic studies, including artistic classes.
There are 11 sections at the Goetheanum that offer conferences throughout the year, often translated or held in multiple languages. See the individual websites for current programs.
The following schools and sections offer occupational Anthroposophical courses, diploma programs and research options in Dornach: eurythmy (performing arts section), painting (visual art section), education, biodynamic agriculture, medicine, mathmatics/astronomy and natural science. The youth section located on the Goetheanum hill, houses a multitude of activities and international conferences in English, German and Spanish. The literary arts and humanities section and the social science section can be contacted for questions about involvement, study or research.
The 11 Sections for the School of Spiritual Science are involved in world issues and research projects.

Together the Goetheanum employees and all interested members of the Anthroposophic Society will celebrate this special moment. Afterwards there will be festivities on the terrace including:
Welcoming (Paul Mackay)
Building Renovation Project (Martin Zweifel)
Scene from Faust (Christian Peter and others)
Stage Renovation (Nils Frishknecht)
Funding of the Renovation (Justus Wittich)
Ideas and Tasks of the Goetheanum building (Paul Mackay)
Tour of the Stage

Refreshments on the Terrace or in case of weather, in the Foyer
All activities, events, and small and big conferences at the Goetheanum during the planned year of construction, despite the closing of the Stage and Great Hall, will be held in full volume, in more confined conditions, with the charm of the workspace character, as well as traces and noises of the construction. Also, the Goetheanum Eurythmy Stage will continue to work without a break, and will perform in the Schreinerei or go on tour. The same goes for the Mystery Dramas, who are invited as guest performers in various cities, and will perform on the new Goetheanum stage for the 2014 Christmas conference.
We’re looking forward to your support and help with the beginning of the construction at the Goethenaum.
From the Executive Council,
Paul Mackay and Justus Wittich
Celebration: September 29th, 2013 16:00-18:00, Great Hall
