The Cultural Department works closely with cultural foundations, agencies and governmental bodies in Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Its services operate across all creative industries, art and culture in Switzerland and the UK by providing information concerning funding opportunities, promotion in the UK and facilitating contacts. In cooperation with local institutions, individuals and universities the Department supports cultural projects and events and establishes an intercultural exchange.

‘CH+UK’ is an ongoing initiative by the Embassy of Switzerland promoting Swiss artists, creative industries and culture in the UK.
