Switzerland/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.4 Direct professional co-operation

Projects are prepared on Pro Helvetia's activities with its liaison offices in order to facilitate a direct exchange between professional cultural producers in Switzerland and the corresponding key countries (see chapter 3.4.2). It is also often Swiss institutions that invite guests from particular countries, initiate joint projects, or award a contract. Professional cooperation occurs both by way of public cultural promotion and through private activities. Increasingly popular are the temporary guest residencies in studios provided by cantons, cities, or cultural associations to foreign cultural producers, enabling an exchange between the local professional scene and countries abroad
