From 2008 until 2011 the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen offered an artist-in-residence program in cooperation with Pro Helvetia. Artists from foreign countries applied with a project directly with Pro Helvetia and were being cared for by the staff of the Kunst Halle in Switzerland. The general aim of the program is the promotion of cultural exchange, the networking of the participating artists and the realisation of art projects in St. Gallen.
