Contact the staff
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.
- Convincing track record: professional activity above and beyond local/regional level
- Clear, contextually related motivation
- Adequate relevant foreign language skills
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.
