FHNW HGK Basel Mandate

swissnex Boston and the FHNW Academy of Art and Design Basel collaborate to foster Swiss cultural entrepreneurship through active exchange with relevant actors on the US East Coast. The aim is to support two FHNW HGK initiatives: The European Center of Art, Design and Media based Research (ECAM) and Swiss Cultural Entrepreneurship (SCE) — by promoting their visibility and network on the US East Coast.

As part of the partnership, an Associate is hired to directly represent the FHNW Academy of Art and Design Basel’s interests on the East Coast while working at swissnex Boston. In the course of this 6-month professional placement, he or she develops joint programs between FHNW HGK and swissnex Boston as well as with local partners.
