In reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia is launching a call for projects for new formats that enable art production and reception to continue despite restrictions on mobility and gatherings. With its call for projects named «Close Distance», Pro Helvetia is inviting cultural practitioners and institutions to use the current lockdown as an opportunity to develop new formats that do not require mobility.
