    Geneva commits to digital creation | City of Geneva

    Being the subject of a new line in the 2023 budget of the City of Geneva approved by the Municipal Council, this new support first materialized through research grants And development of a digital creation project. These aimed to encourage and stimulate experimentation in the field of digital arts. They have also clarified the support for an area which until now did not exist for itself in the system of cultural support of the City.

    Support for digital creation

    Considering the resources available and the budgets often necessary to develop a complete project in terms of digital creation, the SEC made the choice in a pilot phase to favor the initial phase of the development of a project:

    • preparatory development of a project (ranging from writing to pre-production)
    • manufacturing of a pilot or prototype (proof of concept)

    With this choice, the Administrative Advisor in charge of culture and digital transition, Sami Kanaan intends to encourage artistic emergence in this area, support the experimentation of new forms of creation and thus strengthen their capacity to then find the necessary financing to their deployment. This new support is linked to thedigital creation ecosystem which materialized around the Digital creation center hosted within the RTS and of which the City of Geneva is a partner.

    Endowed, in its pilot phase, with 100,000.-, this budget line was tripled during the vote on the 2024 budget.

    As part of the new law for the promotion of culture and artistic creation (LPCCA) which came into force on January 1, 2024, the canton and the City of Geneva are setting up a new joint support system, intended for creation digital, endowed, for a first pilot phase, with a total amount of 500,000.- francs.

    The support granted within the framework of this system is intended to encourage the following stages of a digital creation project:

    • writing, research, development (artistic and/or technical);
    • production of a pilot or prototype;
    • realization or production.
