Through shortfall guarantees and project-specific contributions, SüdKulturFonds supports productions and events featuring artists from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe (non-EU countries). The aim of the fund's support activities is to facilitate access to the Swiss cultural market and to professional networks for artists from the southern and eastern countries of the world and particularly from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation partner countries (list). Projects which are artistically independent and credible have priority for funding contributions. Only projects which take place in Switzerland are eligible for support.


SüdKulturFonds is financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). Project applications should only be submitted to the Office for Cultural Cooperation artlink, who will judge the applications together with industry experts.


Deadlines for applications of over CHF 5'000:
31st January | 30th April | 31st August | 30th November.


From July 1, 2016, all applications and accounts must be submitted in electronic form via the new SüdKulturFonds portal! As of this date, access to the portal will be available on this page!
