8 – 18 September 2022


Pro Helvetia is offering two up-and-coming theatre practitioners a network residency at the acclaimed production house CAMPO in Ghent (Belgium). The residency consists of two parts. The first is a visit to the ten-day Het TheaterFestival, which features a jury-based pick of the best Belgian plays of the past season. In the second part, the selected candidates take part in the four-day international After Summer School organised by CAMPO.

An international group of young theatre practitioners get to know established peers in their field in a four-day workshop. During their stay in Ghent, the selected candidates will enjoy professional mentoring, be introduced to the local theatre scene and be able to forge contacts with international fellow artists.

Selection Procedure

The offer is aimed at theatre practitioners in the areas of directing, acting, performance, scenography and dramaturgy who have gained initial experience with theatre projects of their own and who work in Switzerland on an ongoing basis – either in the independent scene or at a theatre institution. Pro Helvetia will assume all the associated costs. A good knowledge of English is a precondition for participating in the After Summer School.
