With «Keep Going!», FONDATION SUISA launched a temporary funding model in the first half of 2021 to help the Swiss music scene maintain its activities in times of crisis.
The positive feedback and the numerous applications received underlined the importance of an adaptable funding policy. The FONDATION SUISA's top priority has always been to encourage the development of creative ideas and to enable their implementation, even in uncertain times and under more challenging circumstances.
During the two «Keep Going!» calls for projects in March and April, a total of 307 applications were received. 30 of them were selected by a jury of experts and supported with a contribution of CHF 5,000 each.
A «Keep Going!» contribution of CHF 5000 each was awarded to:
