Applications open for Swiss Cultural Fund UK
Applications are now open for the Swiss Cultural Fund UK to support emerging and established Swiss artistic talents in the United Kingdom.
As an independent charity the Swiss Cultural Fund UK’s project budget is limited, therefore grants awarded generally do not exceed a maximum allocation of £3000 per project.
Applicants must fulfil the following criteria in order to be considered:
Applicants must be Swiss nationals or must have been living in Switzerland for at least five years and have a proven track record.
Artists can only apply once they have a project planned with a well-established and recognized not-for-profit UK cultural organization or venue in the UK.
Priority is given to emerging artists who are at the beginning of their career.
Artists who are students will not be supported by means of a bursary or similar grant.
Venues / institutions may apply on behalf of the Swiss artist(s) they are presenting.
When applying on behalf of Swiss artists, venues / institutions must specify how they intend to allocate the funding they apply for.
The Project must:
Demonstrate a high standard of artistic quality or specialist skill
Be innovative in subject and professional in implementation
Be accessible to the public
Promote sustainability and be socially inclusive
Demonstrate an appropriate cost-benefit ratio
Be submitted in ENGLISH and two months prior to its start date
