Visual Arts Work Grants Program (Switzerland)

Visual Arts Work Grants Program (Switzerland)

Deadline: 1-Sep-22

Pro Helvetia has launched the Work Grants Program under Visual Arts to support the creation of new works in the visual arts, photography or architecture.

Pro Helvetia promotes the professional contemporary Swiss visual arts with a view to ensuring their diversity as well as their national and international reach. It supports the creation of new artistic works, the dissemination of Swiss art and culture outside Switzerland, international cultural exchange and exchange between Switzerland’s various linguistic regions.

Pro Helvetia supplements the promotional activities of Swiss cantons and municipalities and supports only projects that are cross-regionally or internationally recognised.

In the visual arts, Pro Helvetia supports fine arts, photography and architecture.
