In order to accompany the artists at the core of their creative process, far° has been building up a project called Associated Artist (Artiste Associé). Its goal is to elaborate new research tools and to offer better visibility to an artist’s work. The program includes a regular follow-up by the far° team, as well as coaching in the shape of a mentoring program, as well as meetings with researchers, scientists or specialists of a number of disciplines. The artist will be encouraged to discover various creations in Switzerland and abroad, and to participate in workshops, thus enabling encounters with other artists from the field of the performing arts. In order to experiment with other forms of creation, the artist also has the opportunity to work on a personal publication.
The artist has the support of YAA! – Young Associated Artist, initiated by Pro Helvetia – Swiss foundation for culture.
