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 Russia.
The residencies last for three months at most. Pro Helvetia provides accommodation, daily allowances, professional supervision, travel expenses, a contribution towards production and material costs (on request) and a workplace (on request).
The following are eligible: 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.
This year Swiss cultural practitioners interested in residency in Russia and Russian cultural practitioners interested in residency in Switzerland may also apply for digital format of residency programme as an alternative opportunity.
The digital format of residency follows a similar format to the regular residency, whereby the artist is supported to develop new professional connections and new directions in their practice during the course of three months.
In case of digital format support of Pro Helvetia covers daily allowances, professional supervision, a contribution towards production and material costs (on request), and a mentor from the destination country.
