The call for Studio Residency 2020 is open now. A studio residency (3 months) in China or, conversely in Switzerland, gives artists the chance to gain a broad insight into a different cultural environment. The aim of the residency is to find inspiration, establish networks and contemplate new projects and cooperations. In addition to a place to work and accommodation, Pro Helvetia will provide specific coaching. The Swiss Arts Council covers the cost of travel, insurances and per diem expenses. Applicants may benefit three times in total from a Pro Helvetia studio residency.
Applications can be submitted until March 1, 2019 via www.myprohelvetia.ch. Applications must be written in English. Further information on Pro Helvetia Shanghai’s homepage www.prohelvetia.cn.
