Studio Residencies. South Africa <—> Switzerland
Pro Helvetia Johannesburg supports 3-month studio residencies for artists from Southern Africa in Switzerland, or conversely for Swiss artists in Southern Africa. Studio residencies provide artists with an opportunity to gain a broad insight into a different cultural environment, to find inspiration, establish networks and contemplate new projects and co-operation. In addition to workspace and accommodation, Pro Helvetia will provide specific advice and practical support in navigating this different context.
We work with a network of organizations that can host residencies in different urban centers in Switzerland and across the Southern African region. We look to customize each residency according to the needs of the individual arts professional as far as possible. Go to the Residency Network page to find out more about these organizations.
