A studio residency (3 months) for Swiss artists in the Arab region or, conversely, for artists from Arab countries in Switzerland provides 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, we will provide specific coaching. The Swiss Arts Council covers the costs of travel and accommodation, insurance and per diem expenses. Applicants may apply three times in total for a Pro Helvetia studio residency.

Selection criteria

  • convincing track record: personal artistic activity above and beyond regional level
  • context-related motivation
  • adequate foreign language skill


Applications must be written in English and can be submitted via www.myprohelvetia.ch at any time up to three months before the start of the trip. Further information on www.prohelvetia.ch and on the websites of the liaison offices.
