With our «Viavai – Contrabbando culturale Svizzera-Lombardia» programme running from 2013 to 2015, we initiated cooperation between cultural practitioners in the border regions between Italy and Switzerland.

As part of the cross-border cooperation set in motion by «Viavai», the cantons of Ticino and Valais plus the region of Lombardy, with the support of Pro Helvetia, will promote three projects called «Viavai+» in the 2017-18 period with the aim of strengthening contacts between cultural practitioners in these regions.

  • the creative labs serve to create cross-border partnerships through the reciprocal development of project ideas in all artistic disciplines;
  • the residence exchange allows six visual artists to stay in the partner regions;
  • the performing arts network supports the dissemination of theatre and dance works with a contribution to the circulation of six companies from the participating regions.
