FAQ Residencies and Research Trips (ENG)

Visual arts practitioners from Switzerland may apply for a residency at the Swiss Institute New York. Residencies serve to gain inspiration, to establish networks and to start thinking about projects.

Visual arts practitioners from Switzerland may apply simultaneously for residencies in New York and in another region covered by one of Pro Helvetia’s liaison offices. Two separate, complete applications must be submitted. However, a maximum of one application per person will be approved within the framework of one call for applications.

Pro Helvetia offers accommodation, travel costs, a daily allowance, professional supervision, a workplace (on request) and a contribution to production/material costs (on request). Residencies last a maximum of 3 months. Applications may be submitted once a year (application deadline: 1 March) via myprohelvetia.ch. Applicants will be notified in July. Applications must be submitted in English.

Selection criteria

  • Convincing track record: artistic activity with a national/cross-regional reach

  • Sufficient knowledge of the respective foreign language(s)
