Pro Helvetia Cape Town
Celebrating 10 Years Pro Helvetia Cape Town

In 1998 Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council, set up its liaison office in Cape Town. That is a whole 10 years of supporting the arts, and it has been a wonderfully diverse and compelling journey through encounters, phases of empowerment, of beauty and of surprising confrontations, of learning and discovery.

In these 10 years, we have managed to support close to 500 projects, involving artists from Switerland, South Africa and the rest of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

But it is only the beginning. There is no end point in arts creation and development. Pro Helvetia adheres to the principle that culture is an integral part of life, since the main aim of human development is not only social but also cultural fulfillment of the individual. Hence respect for artistic creation is crucial. This has lead to a substainal collaboration with SDC, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, responsible for one half of our mandate.

Now in August and September, Pro Helvetia Cape Town is celebrating its 10th Jubilee with a diverse and interesting programme in Switzerland showcasing dance, visual arts and music events.
