Aiming to provide the best-possible support for arts and culture practitioners, Pro Helvetia reassesses, develops and improves its funding measures each year. Here you will find an overview of changes applicable from 2024.

Research grant

Grant applications for research combining artistic, social and/or scientific themes are no longer assessed by an external jury and may therefore be submitted on an ongoing basis. 

Further information: Art+: Research grant

Discover some project examples here.


What was previously known as Tandem Art+ is now called Art+: Exchange and offers art practitioners an opportunity of regular exchange with a specialist in social or scientific subjects over a period of 3 to 12 months. Applications may be submitted throughout the year.

Thematic event

Cultural institutions and organisations may apply for thematic events (analogue, digital or hybrid) that give fresh impetus to art and culture and make them publicly accessible to an audience. Applications may be submitted throughout the year.
