TEOK Basel has been selected as one of the 10 participants in the inaugural edition of the Swiss Cultural Challenge. Launched by the HGK FHNW, the Swiss Cultural Challenge addresses creative entrepreneurs from the fields of art, design, media and music. It is based on the conviction that artistic freedom, trans-disciplinary thinking, social relevance as well as a high degree of individual responsibility are valuable properties that are worth protecting from exploitation through self-empowerment.
The programme promotes young artists, designers as well as musicians and media designers who wish to link their work with questions of the economy, ecology or society. All participants benefit from a mentoring programme as well as from workshops and lectures. Three of them will be selected by an expert jury and receive a prize of CHF 10 000 each as a start-up-support for their company’s foundation and development.
The programme started in October 2016 and will extend to March 2017, when a final presentation will lead to the choice of the three winners. Wish us luck!
