We're starting the year with our annual residencies open call!
Deadline: 10 March 2021
Pro Helvetia has launched a call for applications for residencies aimed at cultural practitioners from Switzerland (e.g. artists, curators, cultural intermediaries) and cultural practitioners from Southern, East, West and Central Africa.
The residencies last for three months at most and offer the opportunity to gain broad insight into a different cultural context, establish connections with local artists and develop collaborations. Pro Helvetia provides accommodation, daily allowances, professional supervision, travel expenses, a contribution towards production and material costs (on request) and a workplace (on request).
Artists and cultural practitioners in the fields of visual arts, design and interactive media, music, literature and performing arts, as well as arts practitioners with a transdisciplinary focus are eligible to apply.
On our website you can find more information about possible residency destinations and partners in Switzerland and on the subcontinent, as well as selection criteria and FAQs.
We are aware that the global COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to great uncertainty. We will do our utmost to create a suitable framework and conditions to support you in your activities and your process.
