«Design and art nowadays play out on an international stage. At our universities, we groom our students for a globalised work and market environment. Pro Helvetia is an important source of support for our young creatives in this context. With its liaison offices in cultural hotspots around the world, its project grants and programmes for up-and-coming young talents, it opens doors and provides opportunities for Swiss art and design practitioners in the international arena. And any break-through and success at international level automatically reflects back on Switzerland.»
