Folk culture

Pro Helvetia supports projects in the field of folk culture within Switzerland with means from the folk culture fund, administered by IG Volkskultur. The fund is intended for projects which promote cultural exchange beyond a local or regional context, encourage the development of folk culture practice, or strengthen the qualifications of folk culture players which act as mediators of folk culture practice.

Applications can be submitted to the secretariat of the IG Volkskultur (volkskultur.ch) twice a year every year, by March 1 and September 1.

Status: January 2017
