Technological advances in communications do more than revolutionize communication, they also give rise new forms of artistic expression. With its "Mobile: In Touch with Digital Creation" program, the Swiss Arts Council, Pro Helvetia, supports Swiss artists who explore the creative potential of digital media.
The purpose of the program, which runs till the end of 2015, is to provide an impetus for and raise the profile of interactive and transmedia culture in Switzerland. Frontline strategy involves three calls for projects launched jointly by Pro Helvetia and major Swiss and international partners in fall 2013. Various other platforms are being set up to promote the program and for sharing expertise. They will include lectures, workshops, exhibitions, and festivals.
The program's four-year budget is 1.8 million Swiss francs. "Mobile: In Touch with Digital Creation" is part of Pro Helvetia's priority "Digital Culture" program.
