Our Offices & Partners Abroad

Pro Helvetia Moscow

The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia strongly condemns Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine.

Pro Helvetia Directorate and its Moscow office have jointly decided to suspend all project support in Russia until further notice. The Moscow team remains active and is available for any inquiries and consultations.

We have been committed to cultural exchange between Switzerland and Russia through our liaison office in Moscow since 2017.

Areas of operation



To raise awareness of Swiss culture around the world, we forge ties with local event organisers, develop and nurture long-term partnerships, initiate co-productions with artists from the regions concerned and organise residencies.

Key focus

The programme is interdisciplinary in nature. Special emphasis is placed on the disciplines of literature, design, music, performance and visual arts.
We focus on knowledge and experience exchange and collaborations between art practitioners in Switzerland and the whole of Russia.
