Promoting creative exchange between Switzerland and China: we support residencies for Swiss artists in China, as well as for artists and cultural practitioners of China in Switzerland. We offer two kinds of residencies: Three months’ studio residencies and one week’s research residencies. Applications for studio residencies can be submitted once a year, from November until March. Research residencies are limited to four weeks; applications can be submitted at any time. Artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event organisers, mediators) in the areas of the visual arts, design and interactive media, music, theatre and dance are eligible to apply.
We offer Swiss art practitioners the possibility of a residency in China. In return, artists from China are given an opportunity to go to Switzerland for a studio or research residency stay.
