Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi
Campo S. Agnese
Dorsoduro 810
30123 Venezia
Vaporetto stop: Zattere or Accademia

Built in the 15th century, Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi is the seat of both the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the Swiss Consulate in Venice. The cultural activities that are regularly organised there by Pro Helvetia on the one hand and the Consulate General of Switzerland in Milan on the other make the Palazzo an important venue for Swiss culture in Venice.

Besides events supplementing the exhibitions at the Swiss Pavilion during the Venice art and architecture biennials, Palazzo Trevisan also serves as venue for the concert and cultural event series entitled NEW ECHO SYSTEM, which focuses on experimental and on-site creational work. In parallel with this programme, Pro Helvetia offers theme-based residencies for Swiss cultural practitioners. Further information on the thematic fields in question can be found in the tabs.

Current information on events at Palazzo Trevisan are available on its Instagram channel.

A key part of Pro Helvetia’s programme is the event series NEW ECHO SYSTEM, launched in 2021, which focuses on experimental and on-site creation. The curated programme is multidisciplinary in approach and constantly under development.

NEW ECHO SYSTEM comprises a series of performances and concerts by Swiss and Italian artists from all disciplines who are united by a common language: contemporary music, be it jazz, electronic or experimental. The encounters focus on collaboration between the disciplines, from the research phase, conducted together at the Palazzo, to performance, either on-site or in cooperation with local institutions.

Residency 2024 – Call for Applications

deadline: 1 March 2023

More information

In addition to this programme, Pro Helvetia offers thematic residencies for Swiss cultural practitioners. The aim of the studio residency in Venice is to support artistic research dedicated to the city’s cultural and social situation today and the transformation processes taking place there. The one-month or three-month residencies will allow participants, through their artistic practice, to engage in dialogue and build sustained relationships with representatives of various social groups in Venice.

Applications for participation in this residency programme may be submitted only in connection with the annual call for applications. The next call for applications – for a residency in 2024 – will be launched in January 2023. The application deadline is 1 March 2023. More info here.
