A research residency (max. 4 weeks) enables artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event organisers, mediators) to carry out research in China or, conversely, in Switzerland. The aim of the residency is to prepare an exchange project. We support the compilation of the visiting programme. The Swiss Arts Council covers the costs of travel, accommodation, insurance and per diem expenses.
