What Pro Helvetia supports

We support 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.


With initiatives of our own we take up topical developments in the arts scene and lay the foundations of new networks for Swiss cultural practitioners at home and abroad.

Our initiatives are devised in collaboration with artists, event organisers, cultural institutions, public and private sector sponsors and, in an international context, with our country’s diplomatic and consular missions abroad.

Our Offices & Partners Abroad

We maintain a network of offices around the world. They support ongoing cultural exchange between Switzerland and the countries or regions concerned.

The cultural centres present Swiss arts in international hubs of cultural life. The liaison offices initiate and nurture contacts between cultural practitioners from Switzerland and other global regions, and contribute to the dialogue between cultures.
