Swiss Made in Russia programme 2013-2015

ProHelvetia - Russia

With its «Swiss Made in Russia - Contemporary Cultural Exchanges» programme, developed over 2013-2015, Pro Helvetia aims to build new networks between Swiss and Russian cultural institutions and to strengthen existing forms of cooperation. A further goal is to foster an open dialogue between cultural practitioners from both countries.

The cross-disciplinary cultural exchange programme contains five strands:

  • Texts (literature)

  • Talks (debates)

  • Spaces (design, architecture, landscape architecture, art in public spaces)

  • Visuals (visual and media art)

  • Stages (performing arts)

The programme was launched in November 2012 at the 14th «International Book Fair for high-quality non/fiction» in Moscow. It has a budget of CHF 1.85 Million.
