SPAAC is a multidisciplinary design practice, that aims to create unique eating experiences, widening the definition of guests’ involvement in them. We design food oriented spatial concepts, whose realizations vary from installations, stage design and performances to exhibitions. Our practice attempts to tell stories about culture, rituals and people rather than designing the appearance of food on a plate. Food is our artistic medium, which is able to commentate historical and contemporary realities to enhance people’s communication and to activate their senses and memories. The food-centered actions we create can help people relate to each other, question their reality and also simply get in good spirits, marvelling at the unexpected while eating or drinking.

«I greatly appreciate the Swiss Cultural Entrepreneurship initiative because it shows that the combination of meaningful work in an entrepreneurial environment does not have to contradict each other. Quite the contrary, the areas complement each other – if the right resources are used. The former students are supported with a variety of hands-on examples to successfully implement their ideas in a company.»

Marc Zehntner (Director Vitra Design Museum)

Through its incentive programme Swiss Cultural Challenge, the initiative Swiss Cultural Entrepreneurship supports creative personalities, cultural practitioners and initiators who wish to advance their founding idea and are ready to assume responsibility for themselves and society. In the critical phase between studying and a professional career in art and design, the initiative backs the requisite steps in project and business development through offering workshops in communication, law, finances, individual mentoring as well as discursive formats and exhibitions.

Regardless of whether a project just needs a few finishing touches, whether a new format is being developed, or whether the venture is still in its infancy: the capacity-building programme provides time and space for creative and cultural workers to test and experiment– always with the current societal challenges in mind. Swiss Cultural Challenge advocates a transdisciplinary, diversitary and cooperative approach. It provides guidance to projects after graduation, enables encounters, provides space for critique, inspiration, and experimentation for the purpose of sharpening and enhancing a proposed business idea. Collaboration partners include like-minded experts and initiatives as well as museums, business companies and associations, as well as foundations.
