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. We make our own independent decisions about what we promote. We are a foundation under public law, entirely funded by the federal government.
Pro Helvetia support projects in different ways: on the basis of applications, via our network of cultural centres and liaison offices, within the framework of our own programmes and through information and promotional materials.
Pro Helvetia reports transparently about its funding activities and every year publishes information about the grants it has awarded. Use the database to find out about recipients, size of grants and types of project. The online database is a supplement to the annual report.
