Dance Funding

Dance and performance projects depend on funding for their realisation. Below you will find information on how to prepare an application and links to important funding institutions and organisations.

The application is the most important instrument for successful project funding. A formally correct and convincing structure influences the decision-making bodies positively. There are no universal guidelines for the perfect application. An important principle is that an application must always be based on the requirements of the funding body and should be adapted accordingly.

Tips and guidance on writing grant applications can be found here.

Both public bodies and private sources, e.g. in the form of foundations, offer dance professionals and dance companies in Switzerland opportunities for financial support. It is often challenging to find the appropriate addresses when it comes to production or tour funding, when funds are sought for mediation projects or other things.
