Head of Pro Helvetia Cairo
We have been committed to cultural exchange between Switzerland and the Arab world through our liaison office in Cairo since 1988.
Areas of operation
Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Palestine and Bahrain.
To raise awareness of Swiss culture around the world, we forge ties with local event organisers, develop and nurture long-term partnerships, initiate co-productions with artists from the regions concerned and organise residencies.
The programme is interdisciplinary in nature. Special emphasis is placed on the disciplines of theatre, music and visual arts.
We focus on collaboration projects between cultural practitioners from Switzerland and the Arab world, various formats of exchange in connection with contemporary art and culture, and research residencies.
