These institutions are now part of the FUTURES community and will select each year two emerging artists from Switzerland to benefit from the programme FUTURES offers.
In 2023, the selected artists are:
- Thi My Lien Nguyen and Thalles Piaget (Photoforum Pasquart)
- Tamara Janes and Florian Amoser (Photo Elysée)
- Mathilda Olmi and eden levi am (Centre de la photographie Genève – CPG)
This latest collaboration with FUTURES is part of Pro Helvetia’s new measures for the support and funding of photography. Pro Helvetia reinforces its cooperation with international forums, thus facilitating among Swiss photographers the pursuit of targeted networking activities.
FUTURES is a Europe-based photography platform bringing together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world. Since 2017, it aims to add long term value in empowering early and mid-career photographers – launching initiatives to promote their work and granting them access to a network of professionals, markets and audiences.
