Pro Helvetia has a large array of promotional tools at its disposal to help talented young performing arts practitioners develop their potential, pursue their career and ultimately establish themselves at an international level. Thanks to the partnerships we maintain with renowned institutions in Switzerland and abroad, we are able to provide professional settings for the project.

The projects involved are ambitious and demanding, devised for especially promising artists. We use formats tailored to each artist’s individual profile to ensure the best possible support for the development of their talent and their career, including mentoring programmes, residencies, participation at international events and assistance with dramaturgy projects. The programme COMPASS helps emerging performing arts companies with the strategic planning of their international touring activities.

To be eligible for funding, artists must be in the first five years of their career, either after completing their professional training or after presenting their work in public for the first time. The tabs calls for application and partner projects provide you with further information.
