The project “Residence artistiche in Valle Verzasca" allows professional photographers
to develop a series of images in total artistic freedom while staying in the Verzasca valley.

The photographers are selected based on their previous works. They accept the challenge of plunging into a reality that is either in part or completely new to them and work on a personal project.

The presence of outside guest photographers is an opportunity for cultural and artistic exchange, both for local artists as well as for the native population. The images produced strive to show diverse views and contemporary representations of Valle Verzasca.

The 2015 and 2016 editions of this Artist-in-Residence project were part of the national initiative ’’Cultural diversity in non-urban regions“ launched by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. Through its initiative Pro Helvetia encourages and strengthens the regional cultural offering.
