Pro Helvetia promotes the production and dissemination of transdisciplinary projects from Switzerland with a view to diversity as well as national and international reach. Such projects are also meant to enhance transdisciplinary knowledge exchange and to provide society with creative stimulus and access to critical thinking. At the same time, Pro Helvetia adopts various measures to promote greater diversity and equal opportunities in the cultural sector, is committed to raising the visibility of marginalised groups, and aims to provide sustainable support and guidance to initiatives and organisations in this field in Switzerland. As a national foundation, Pro Helvetia supports international cultural exchange and exchange between Switzerland’s various linguistic regions, and supplements the promotional activities of Switzerland’s cantons and cities.
