A studio residency (3 months) for Swiss artists in South Asia ( to India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan or Sri Lanka) or, conversely, for artists from South Asia (from either India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan or Sri Lanka] in Switzerland gives artists the chance to gain a broad insight into a different cultural environment. The aim of the residency is to find inspiration, establish networks and contemplate new projects and cooperations. In addition to a place to work and accommodation, Pro Helvetia will provide specific coaching. The Swiss Arts Council covers the cost of travel, insurances and per diem expenses. Applicants may benefit three times in total from a Pro Helvetia studio residency.

Selection criteria

    • convincing track record: personal artistic activity above and beyond regional level

For Swiss artists and art practitioners

Swiss artists and cultural practitioners can apply for a residency to the following countries in South Asia:
•India
•Bangladesh
•Nepal
•Pakistan
•Sri Lanka
As part of our increasing networks and activities in the entire south Asian region, we encourage artists to apply for residencies 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 residency 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.
