2024: Updated funding measures and information event

Diversity and equality

Pro Helvetia adjusts and finetunes its support measures each year. Here you will find an overview of changes applicable from 2024.

Process support

The call for applications for diversity process support will now be open twice a year (application deadlines 1 April and 1 October).

Further information: details see below


Event and/or work tool

What was previously known as “tools and knowledge transfer formats” is now called “event and/or work tool”. Funding is provided for events (in-person, digital or hybrid), such as workshops or discussion series, that aim to break down barriers to accessibility and increase equal opportunities in the cultural sector. As well as practical work tools, such as guides or checklists, for cultural institutions and organisations that promote diversity. Applications may be submitted throughout the year.

Open calls for applications

Process support workshop

In the two-day Diversity process support workshop (6–7 June 2024, Berne), cultural organisations learn about diversity-oriented organisational development and the methods and tools needed to devise diversity strategies for one’s own organisation. Applications for the workshop can be submitted up to 1 April 2024.
