«Get Going!» and «Carte Blanche»
As part of its 2018 funding policy renewal, FONDATION SUISA grants four annual "Get Going!"-contributions as well as a biennial "Carte Blanche".
At the beginning of 2018, FONDATION SUISA's Foundation Council decided to revamp its funding policy in order to meet the contemporary needs of Swiss music-making even more efficiently. Instead of awarding prizes retroactively, the contributions "Get Going!" and "Carte Blanche" do not support projects within the framework of traditional application funding, but rather initiate and co-finance creative and artistic processes outside the usual genre, age or project categories.
The four «Get Going!»-contributions are annually published by a call for proposals. They consist of a start-up funding of 25.000 francs each.
The «Carte Blanche», coming with a value of 80.000 franks, is awarded by jury of professionals every two years.
