Pro Helvetia Johannesburg Breathing Space Grant 2020/2021


Pro Helvetia Johannesburg Breathing Space Grant 2020/2021: Pro Helvetia Johannesburg is now accepting applications form African artists for its 2020 ‘Breathing Space’ Grant. The deadline for the submission of applications for the Pro Helvetia Johannesburg “Breathing Space” Grant is 31st August, 2020.

The call looks to enable a modest ‘breathing space’ for arts practitioners, organisations and networks across the sub–continent to rethink ways of working and reimagine the shape and position of cultural and creative work.

Pro Helvetia Johannesburg Breathing Space Grant 2020/2021.

The call is intended to open up opportunities to experiment with new possibilities and formats for artistic production, exchange, collaboration, presentation and reception, responsive to the complex demands of the present time at both a very local and global level.

Moving beyond the normal funding instruments, the present call both supports entirely new ideas and initiatives, as well as the amplification or extension of what arts practitioners are already doing in response to changing circumstances. They are also open to proposals that involve the exploration of new formats and approaches as well as projects that use this moment of global rupture to engage more deeply with or interrogate older methods and practices and archives – or indeed to do both.

Pro Helvetia Johannesburg Grant Eligibility.

  • Open to artists, collectives and organisations from across the African continent, excluding North Africa (which is covered by a parallel call from the Cairo office). Applicants should be actively involved in the professional arts field on the subcontinent.
  • Open to all disciplines that Pro Helvetia is active in – music, performing arts, visual arts, literature, design and interactive media, and inter-disciplinary work. Note that cinematographic film (long form, short form and documentary content for cinematic screening or televisual broadcast) is excluded from Pro Helvetia’s mandate.
  • Activities covered by the grant should be completed and reported on by the end of April 2021.
  • Only one application per individual/organisation.
  • The organisers are not in a position to cover the general salaries and running costs of organisations and institutions, beyond a reasonable project administrative fee which may be included in the budget proposal (normally not more than 10% of the overall budget). Artist and other project specific specialist fees may however be included as eligible costs.

Requests should be between CHF 2,000 and CHF 10,000 in value (circa US$ 2,100 – US$10,500). The more precise, specific and clear the budget is in relation to what you are trying to achieve, the better.

Pro Helvetia Johannesburg ‘Breathing Space’ Grant Selection Criteria.

1. Clarity of purpose, intended outcome/s and methods (Is it clear what you want do and why?).

2. Originality in concept and methods, artistic quality and relevance (Will the project contribute something new and significant to the field in concept and approach? Will the project have a life beyond the immediate stage covered by the grant?).

3. Track record and professionalism of the applicant and their network (Will the project be professionally executed?).
