Corona update: federal measures for cultural workers


Following the Federal Council meeting of March 20, 2020, it is now known what measures and resources the federal government will use to support the entire cultural sector.

Pro Helvetia, the associations, Suisseculture Sociale and Swissfoundations are also organising themselves and offering, among other things, an Infopoint under the leadership of Pro Helvetia.

My tip: Please use the channels listed below to find out which paths and offers exist that are best suited to your specific situation.

Take care of yourself and stay healthy! – and above all: stay at home!!!
