«Get Going!» 2024 ⎪ Call for proposals

«Get Going!» goes into the next round: FONDATION SUISA is awarding up to eight grants of CHF 25,000 each.  


IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Please read the following information carefully. Projects must be submitted using the online application tool at the bottom of this page.

WHAT IS «GET GOING!»?

  • The idea behind of the incentive programme «Get Going!» launched annually is based on the philosophy of “making things possible”.
  • «Get Going!» is a seed funding accelerator and investment in a next career step. It presupposes the existence of an established track record and musical trajectory.
  • «Get Going!» seeks to facilitate creative working and artistic development.
  • «Get Going!» does not expect a fully finalised project: present us your ideas, visions, your project in its development phase.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE CONSIDERED?

  • The call for projects is deliberately being kept open; there are, for instance, no genre, age or project categories.
  • The «Get Going!» call for projects purposely takes the form of an “elevator pitch”: submissions should be kept brief, coherent and focused on the essential core message. The jury must come away with a clear idea of what the applicant is communicating.
  • Applications are invited from composers, lyricists and musicians who can demonstrate a clear connection to current musical creation in Switzerland or Liechtenstein (= musical repertoire).
  • The choice of means (written, video/audio file, etc.) is down to the applicant, but the submission must be delivered in digital form via the online application tool.
  • If necessary, the jury may respond with follow-up questions.
  • For concrete projects that are already in the realisation stage, please use our online submission tool.

The following will not be considered:

  • Projects with an audio/video production or a concert tour as principal final outcome.
  • Projects disallowed by FONDATION SUISA’s general funding regulations (paragraph 6.4 of the Funding Regulations).
