Pro Helvetia Cairo offers Studio Residencies [3 months] In order to enhance cultural exchange and artistic collaborations between Switzerland and the Arab region. The aim of the residency is to find inspiration, establish networks and contemplate new projects and cooperations. Residencies are offered in Switzerland for artists and cultural practitioners from the Arab Region. At the same time, Swiss artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event organisers, mediators) in the areas of music, literature, visual arts, design and interactive media, theatre and dance are eligible to apply.

The Studio Residency is a chance for Artists to gain a broad insight into a different cultural environment. 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.
