The ArTS Production Grant for Swiss Artists was made possible through a two-year-agreement developed by Ars Electronica and supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. The ArTS Production Grant fosters artistic creation at the nexus of ArTS (Art, Technology, Society).
The ArTS Production Grant will support an individual artist or an artist group who holds Swiss nationality or has their residence in Switzerland, to develop a new project or an extension of an existing project, that will be premiered at the Ars Electronica Festival September in 2023.
