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-operations. In addition to work space and accommodation, Pro Helvetia will provide specific advice and practical support in navigating this different context. Applicants may benefit three times in total from a Pro Helvetia studio residency.
