Swiss Cultural Fund UK

a Message from Ambassador Dominik Furgler

As the representative of the Swiss authorities in the United Kingdom, and more specifically the cultural authorities, it is a pleasure for me to acknowledge the existence of the Swiss Cultural Fund UK. Created in 1993, this private platform is an excellent partner of British and Swiss cultural institutions as well as the Swiss Embassy. It has proved to be an ideal instrument for showcasing the cultural richness, diversity and creativity of our country, developing high quality exchanges between Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

 

Accordingly, the Fund benefits from the time and attention dedicated to it by the Embassy, which makes every effort to ensure that it is well-managed on a sustainable basis.

 

The SCF is essentially funded by private and corporate donations and I actively support its fundraising activities. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who, through regular or single donations or by sponsoring events or projects, have enabled it to maintain, over all these years, an outstanding cultural programme. This support is extremely valuable to us and we are deeply grateful.
