Art and culture make our lives richer and more colorful. That is why we are supporting three cultural projects in Switzerland, Germany and Spain with a donation during this tough time.
Institutions and projects in the cultural sector are currently coping with challenging times. As a result of the far-reaching restrictions on public life, theaters, galleries, museums, and artists are compelled to imagine new ways to reach their audiences. Behind the scenes, many of them are also developing new methods of collaboration, often relying on digital technologies. Forging these new paths requires courage, investment and creativity. All of this effort requires resources and support.
zetcom, as a company that creates software solutions for the cultural sector, has always felt closely connected with artists, organizations, and institutions that enrich our lives with culture and meaningful experiences.
That is why we are proud to make a donation of CHF 1000 to each of three cultural projects in Switzerland, Germany and Spain. The following projects have been selected by the zetcom staff:
Residency.ch is a non-profit organization providing work and living space for international artists at PROGR Art Center in Bern. The association was founded in 2012 with the aim of inviting visual artists for art residencies, establishing networks with artists and art organizations outside Switzerland and supporting international cultural exchange.
Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt (Germany)
The Goldrausch Künstlerinnenprojekt promotes the careers of outstanding, emerging women artists. It is an independent professional training program for female visual artists; a one-year postgraduate professional development course, an exhibition and public events take place within its framework.
