We support contemporary Swiss arts and culture with a special focus on diversity.
By granting financial contributions, we enable the production of new artistic work, strengthen cultural exchange between Switzerland’s various linguistic regions and between Switzerland and abroad, disseminate Swiss culture worldwide, foster up-and-coming young artists and engage in arts outreach.
As a national institution, we support projects of transregional significance.
Overview of disciplines we promote:
We have six liaison offices around the globe. They serve as bridges between cultural practitioners from Switzerland and other global regions and contribute to the dialogue between cultures.
We maintain the Centre culturel suisse in Paris and make financial contributions to the Istituto Svizzero in Rome and Milan, the Swiss Institute in New York and swissnex San Francisco.
