CORONAVIRUS : FEDERAL COUNCIL MEASURES FOR CULTURAL ACTORS
On Friday, 20 March 2020, the Federal Council issued a series of extraordinary emergency measures which also include measures to support the cultural sector.
The related ordinance includes three specific measures:
Immediate assistance for businesses and creators in the cultural sector;
Compensation for companies and creative artists in the cultural sector;
Support for non-professional cultural associations.
The Confederation has made the cantons responsible for immediate support for companies and compensation.
In the case of non-professional associations, the Confederation has instructed the associations supported by the Federal Interior Department to act as contact points.
The Federal Council has instructed Suisseculture Sociale to take responsibility for immediate assistance for cultural creators. Suisseculture Sociale is currently working hard to set up the necessary infrastructure to meet the expected influx of requests. As soon as the structure is ready to cope, it will inform on the website www.suisseculturesociale.ch. This concerns in particular the criteria to be applied and the documents to be submitted.
It is not yet possible to submit applications.
Due to the number of requests that will have to be responded to, communication will ONLY be in writing.
