Pro Helvetia invites you to an open house on the occasion of the official reopening of its renovated premises at Hirschengraben 22 in Zurich. Following an overall refurbishment of the building commissioned by the City of Zurich, the Swiss Arts Council is moving back into the Haus zum Lindengarten in the heart of Zurich, from where it has been supporting and promoting Swiss arts and culture worldwide for the past 80 years.
The open house aims to give the general public an opportunity to view the inside of this historic building and to become acquainted with the Arts Council’s activities. A multifaceted programme throughout the day will enable visitors to meet Pro Helvetia’s staff and gain insights into their work. The reopening ceremony of the building will take place at 2pm.
Everyone is welcome.
