Residencies - Funding and Support

Far from home, away from one’s own studio, familiar environment and every-day routine, new ideas and projects can arise, and art can evolve in a different and unexpected direction.

Pro Helvetia, together with its liaison office in India offers Swiss art practitioners the possibility of a residency in South Asia. In return, artists from India and the adjoining South Asian countries are given an opportunity to come to Switzerland for a residency stay.
