Following the announcements of the Federal Council and the State Council with a view to containing the spread of the coronavirus, the Administrative Council of the City of Geneva has decided to adopt several measures designed to support the numerous organisations active in the cultural sphere in Geneva:

  • The subsidies granted to the cultural institutions and organisations subsidised by the City of Geneva will be maintained in full, despite the cancellation or postponement of happenings, events and performances.
  • Furthermore, the cultural institutions and organisations subsidised by the City of Geneva are urged to support this show of solidarity by maintaining their commitments already taken, in particular with regard to independent and casual workers.

The cultural institutions and organisations subsidised by the City of Geneva will be asked to document any losses suffered in relation to COVID-19 in detail when submitting their accounts for the financial year 2020.

In accordance with the recommendations of the Federal Office of Culture and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, institutions and organisations with employees and casual workers are expected, wherever possible and provided they have not already done so, to make use of the RHT system (reduction in working hours) in order to ease their financial outlook.

The City of Geneva, the Loterie Romande and the Association of Municipalities of Geneva are currently in dialogue to introduce measures as quickly as possible designed to facilitate access to the federal emergency aid and compensation mechanism intended for cultural organisations and players.
