Zentrale für Umweltausstellungen

The «Zentrale für Umweltausstellungen» [Center for Environmental Exhibitions] tackles local and regional environmental issues against the background of climate change and makes the existing environmental commitment in Basel visible. Its thematic exhibitions combine transdisciplinary knowledge and presentation practices from art, design and natural science. The Centre explores environmental issues from multiple perspectives and in an aesthetically stimulating and interactive way, with the aim of communicating them to the general public and fostering sustainable thinking in Basel.
«Plan B.», the first exhibition of the Centre, will open in summer 2020. It will focus on the key role of urban trees for our life in the city, in particular in light of the growing threat of climate change.

«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.
