Contact the staff

A research trip (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 trip 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.

Selection criteria

  • convincing track record: personal artistic activity above and beyond regional level
  • context-related motivation
  • adequate foreign language skills
  • specific cultural exchange project with sustainable impact and international resonance, that meet the general criteria of Pro Helvetia.


Applications for research trips must be written in English and can be submitted via www.myprohelvetia.ch throughout the year, at least three months prior to the starting date of the trip.
