Juries

Pro Helvetia nominates juries to assess applications for work grants. They consist of members of Pro Helvetia’s Committee of Experts and of independent experts from the disciplines concerned.

Juries assessing projects submitted in connection with the Arts Council’s own initiatives may include further specialists from the associated fields.
