In collaboration with its liaison offices, Pro Helvetia supports residencies in South Asia, China and South Africa. Swiss artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event organisers, mediators) in the areas of the visual and performing arts, literature, design and interactive media are eligible to apply. At the same time, Pro Helvetia facilitates residencies in Switzerland for artists and cultural practitioners from the above-mentioned regions.
The objective of the residencies is to stimulate creative and mutual exchange between artists. The artists are encouraged to develop their practice in a climate of cultural diversity.
We offer two kinds of residencies: Three months’ studio residencies and research residencies. Applications for studio residencies can be submitted once a year, from November until March. Research residencies are limited to four weeks; applications can be submitted at any time.
