A research trip (of max. 4 weeks) enables artists and cultural practitioners (e.g. curators, event and festival organisers, mediators) to carry out research in Switzerland, or conversely in a Southern African country. The aim of the trip is to explore possibilities for a collaborative or an exchange project. We support the research trips with professional local know-how. The Swiss Arts Council covers the costs of travel, accommodation, insurance and per diem expenses.

The Southern African region includes the following countries:

Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania (including Zanzibar), Zambia, and Zimbabwe.

Selection criteria

  • Convincing track record: professional activity above and beyond local/regional level
  • Clear, contextually related motivation
  • Adequate relevant foreign language skills

Applications

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.
