We are convinced that the movements within culture find their essence in the areas around the increasingly porous borders between genres. We take a great interest in this “no man’s land” as it is an extremely fertile soil for artistic experimentation.

With this particular approach in mind, we created our system of partnerships in 2005. This attitude is also what drives the meeting we organize once a year, because in order to enable the emergence of this potential, we believe it is necessary to first bring our partners into contact on a regular basis and give them the opportunity to think as a group about their collaboration.


While the Foundation responds to the numerous requests for support in the form of one-time financing through an application-based process, partnerships are initiated solely at the discretion of the Foundation.

The Foundation offers three-year partnerships in the areas of the performing arts, visual arts and music for partners including artists, groups of artists, and institutions. The objectives of the partnership are defined by the Foundation and the partners prior to the launch of the project. This format allows the Foundation to offer favorable conditions for creative initiatives that develop over the long term. The partnership may or may not be renewed after an evaluation.


The Foundation’s focus on maintaining continuity governs all of its decisions and is clearly expressed in its choice of partners. Though not an absolute rule, in most cases its partners are artists or institutions that have already received one-off funding from the Foundation for a creative project and whose progress the Foundation follows with a great deal of attention.

What we offer

Annual substantial financial support is only one part of the agreement offered by the Foundation. In our eyes, a partnership consists of sharing ideas, listening, asking questions, and suggesting solutions. We therefore commit ourselves to visiting member organizations, taking part in their programs, and following the work of artists or groups of artists in order to bring a critical eye to their projects.

The Foundation may consult experts to share their knowledge and expertise with partners. We believe that creating networks among partners and organizing meetings provide important opportunities for everyone involved in the projects, as these actions help nourish individuals’ thoughts about their own projects or even initiate new collaborations.

What we require

The Foundation asks that its partners strive to attain the objectives stated in the agreement they have signed, to mention the partnership on all published supporting materials, including their websites, and to regularly send flyers, programs and invitations connected to their projects to our address in Lausanne.

In addition, the partners must provide us with an annual report and take part in an evaluation at the end of the year. This evaluation is based as much on the working methods employed throughout the project as on the final outcome.
