Chéquier culture

Among the different financial measures it implements, the Department of Culture and Digital Transition offers people with a modest income a “chéquier culture”, or cultural cheque book, enabling anyone to take advantage of the wide-ranging cultural offerings in Geneva.

Chéquier culture 2021

The chéquier culture is available to all unemployed people and to those benefiting from an IV pension who satisfy the other eligibility criteria. The six cheques, each worth CHF 10, can be used individually or together all at once. They can also be used to pay for all or part of a guest’s ticket.

The chéquier is available to people who:

  • are aged between 21 and 65;
  • are not students;
  • benefit from the A, B or 100% subsidy from the health insurance service;
