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.
The Federation of Migros Cooperatives Migros Culture Percentage focuses the provision of funding on the artistic creativity phase (ideation / diffusion) and no longer offers specific funding by area (except for our own projects).
- Art spaces: Applications may be submitted for art spaces. Art spaces may submit applications for annual programmes in the diffusion phase if they are of nationwide interest.
- Publications: Publications are regarded as production and are not supported by the Federation of Migros Cooperatives Migros Culture Percentage. Publications are supported by some regional Migros cooperatives.
- Video clips: Video clips are regarded as production and do not receive support from the Federation of Migros Cooperatives Migros Culture Percentage.
- Literary journals: Applications that involve running or production costs cannot be considered. Our funding focuses on meeting salary costs.
