«To-gather» supports the development and testing of new long-term frameworks and methodologies for working internationally.
As the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continued to ripple across the international art sector, mobility and opportunities for international collaboration were limited, while revealing the very precarious realities of many arts practitioners, cultural organisations and institutions.
In response, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia launced a call to support the development and testing of new frameworks and methodologies for working internationally. The «To-gather» International Collaboration call supports 2–3-year collaborations between arts practitioners, cultural organisations and institutions in Switzerland and their counterparts in the regions of the Pro Helvetia liaison offices. The call looks to support time for critical reflection on the current situation, for sharing ideas towards more equal forms of exchange between cultures and across contexts, and for experimenting with new formats for collaborating.
