A question?
Contact the staff

A research trip (max. 4 weeks) enables artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event organisers, mediators) to carry out research in India or, conversely, in Switzerland. The aim of the research trip is to prepare an exchange project. We support the compilation of the visiting programme. The Swiss Arts Council covers the costs of travel, accommodation, insurance and per diem expenses.

Selection criteria

  • convincing track record: personal artistic activity above and beyond regional level
  • clear and context-related motivation
  • adequate foreign language skills
  • specific cultural exchange project with sustainable impact and international resonance, that meet the general criteria of Pro Helvetia.

For Swiss artists and art practitioners

Swiss artists and cultural practitioners can apply for a research trip to the following countries in South Asia:
•Sri Lanka
As part of our increasing networks and activities in the entire south Asian region, we encourage artists to apply for research trips in the above mentioned countries. The artist could either have already identified the partner in the host country and needs to mention this in the proposal, or request for Pro Helvetia New Delhi to make this contact for them.

The effort of the New Delhi office will be to facilitate a research trip in the requested country in South Asia. However, the artist will have to be open to alternate options within the region, based on the best possible match with their application.

For South Asian artists and art practitioners

Pro Helvetia facilitates research trip in Switzerland for artists and cultural practitioners from
•Sri Lanka
in the areas of performing and visual arts, literature, design and interactive media.


Applications must be written in English and can be submitted via www.myprohelvetia.ch at any time up to three months before the start of the trip. Further information on www.prohelvetia.ch and on the websites of the liaison offices.
