Nestlé S.A.’s long commitment to the arts was specifically recognized in 1991 via the creation of the Fondation Nestlé pour l’Art to mark the company’s 125th anniversary. The Foundation’s mission is to promote the creation of contemporary artistic work in Switzerland. Venturing into an arena that is different yet complementary to that of the founding company, being audacious, revealing potential, encouraging new approaches and striving for excellence: these exciting challenges are just as relevant 30 years after its creation as they were at the Foundation’s outset.

Supported projects

End of support on the 30th of June 2022

The Fondation Nestlé pour l’Art has been supporting artists for over 30 years and has always been committed to supporting the Swiss cultural scene in its diversity. The Foundation’s initial capital of CHF 25 million Swiss Francs will be exhausted in the course of 2022.

Consequently, support for projects will end on June 30, 2022. Over 2000 projects have been supported and some 150 partnerships have been accompanied over three decades. As of this date, it will no longer be possible to submit applications for support either through our website or by mail.

Take a look at the projects supported by the Foundation since 1991 under one-time support and discover the partnerships established over a period of 2 to 3 years under annual support.
