In order to enhance cultural exchange and artistic collaborations between Switzerland and Russia, Pro Helvetia offers residencies in both directions. The call for residencies 2020 is open now.

Swiss artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event organisers, mediators) in the areas of music, literature, visual arts, design and interactive media, theatre and dance are eligible to apply. At the same time, Pro Helvetia facilitates residencies in Switzerland for artists and cultural practitioners from Russia.

Studio residencies 2020

A studio residency (3 months) 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.
