You must download the financial aid request form below, print it, complete it and return it, together with the documents listed below, to the Cultural Office of the Department of Culture and Sport.

Which documents are required?

A total of 6 copies of the complete application must be sent and must include the following documents:

  • the subsidy request form for a cultural project;
  • a covering letter addressed to the Department of Culture and Sport of the City of Geneva;
  • a detailed description of the project;
  • the list of main participants in the project together with their CVs and contact details;

How is the application processed?

Subsidies are allocated after the applications have been examined by the music commission, which meets twice a year. It is therefore necessary to comply with the deadlines indicated on this page.

The responses – positive or negative – are communicated in writing only, without indicating the reasons underpinning the decisions.

  • Marcus Gentinetta, cultural advisor to the Cantonal Office of Culture and Sport;

What are the obligations?

A subsidy applies only to the activities agreed. It must be repaid, either in part or in full, if these activities are not completed. It cannot be transferred to a third party.

The beneficiary will mention the support received from the City of Geneva on all printed or multimedia documents published in relation to the project, in principle by inserting a logo available on the website.
As soon as the promotional documents (posters) are published, the beneficiary will submit a copy to Geneva Library (BGE) as a statutory deposit.

Once the project or event is complete, the beneficiary will provide an activity report together with the accounts and balance sheets audited in accordance with the type of control defined by the regulation governing the conditions for granting municipal subsidies LC 21 195 (article 7 and appendices 1 and 2).

An internal auditing guide for subsidised organisations presenting this internal auditing system and a guide indicating the accounting requirements for subsidised non-profit organisations and natural persons are available for download via the Subsidised organisations page.
