The programme «Triptic – Cultural Exchange in the Upper Rhine Region» is strengthening cross-border cooperation between Alsace, Baden Württemberg and Switzerland. The aim of the tri-national exchange programme is to promote new styles of cooperation among cultural institutions between autumn 2013 and spring 2014, and to intensify networking among artists.

To attract a broad spectrum of cultural institutions and event organizers for the «Triptic» cultural exchange, the initiators launched a cross-border tender in the Upper Rhine region in summer 2012. The aim was to find tri-national cooperative projects from all artistic disciplines. A six-person jury of experts from Germany, France and Switzerland have selected the 17 most convincing cultural projects from over 50 entries.

«Triptic» is an initiative promoted by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the Swiss General Consulates in Strasbourg and Stuttgart. The programme will be implemented in partnership with twelve towns and regional bodies from the tri-national Upper Rhine region and its neighbouring areas.
