Pro Helvetia has launched calls for applications for different types of residencies to take place in 2025. Find an overview here.

Residencies enable artists and cultural practitioners to build global networks, gain inspiration and develop new projects. Pro Helvetia’s residency programmes foster cultural exchange and promote contemporary Swiss art and cultural production with a view to diversity as well as national and international appeal.

Accommodation, daily allowances, professional supervision, travel expenses, a contribution towards production and material costs (on request) and a workplace (on request) are provided. In addition, parents may apply for support to co-finance the organisation of childcare, at home or where the residency takes place.
