Cultural ventures

Funding visual Migros Culture Percentage

The Migros Culture Percentage provides funding to help creative artists in Switzerland realise their artistic ventures.

We support dance, theatre, cabaret, music, film, the visual arts, literature, comics, digital culture as well as multidisciplinary ventures. Applicants can request funding for any phase of cultural creativity – from ideation to production and diffusion. While the Federation of Migros Cooperatives supports professional creative artists at national level, the regional cooperatives provide funding for cultural ventures in their own regions.

Several times a year, the Federation of Migros Cooperatives also issues specific calls for bids that will create momentum for a sustainable cultural scene.
