Director of the Pro Helvetia, Philippe Bischof hopes that the crisis will give rise to interesting innovations in terms of cultural proposals. But for now, the key is to stay tuned to the concerns of the industry, he says.
The Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is due to open an office in South America in 2021, with staff members located in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Colombia, as a follow-up to the successful «COINCIDENCIA – Swiss & South American Cultural Exchanges» programme.

It supported numerous projects by Swiss artists in South America and enabled cooperations involving Swiss and South American cultural practitioners and institutions. The new office will allow Pro Helvetia to consolidate existing international relationships and add an important seventh region to those already covered by its global network of offices abroad.
