Who we are

The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is a foundation under public law, entirely funded by the federal government. It fulfils a subsidiary role, complementing the cultural promotion activities of the cantons and municipalities. Pro Helvetia is responsible for projects of nationwide significance.

What we do

Pro Helvetia is mandated by the Swiss Confederation to promote artistic creation in Switzerland, contribute to cultural exchange at home, promote the dissemination of Swiss culture abroad and foster cultural outreach. The foundation makes its own independent decisions about what it should promote.

How we work

Pro Helvetia supports projects in different ways: on the basis of applications, via its network of cultural centres and liaison offices abroad, within the framework of its own programmes and through information and promotional materials.
