Pro Helvetia New Delhi

We have been committed to cultural exchange between Switzerland and India through our liaison office in New Delhi since 2007.

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.

The programme is interdisciplinary in nature. Special emphasis is placed on the disciplines of literature, contemporary dance, visual arts, sound art and jazz music.
We focus on tours, presence at festivals, exhibitions of work by Swiss artists and residencies.
