The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia
Pro Helvetia is mandated by the Swiss Confederation to promote artistic creation in Switzerland, contribute to cultural exchange at home, promote the dissemination of Swiss culture abroad and foster cultural outreach. We make our own independent decisions about what we promote. We are a foundation under public law, entirely funded by the federal government.
We support projects in different ways: on the basis of applications, via our network of cultural centres and liaison offices, within the framework of our own programmes and through information and promotional materials.
