Swiss Original Handmade Creative Project (Award Eur 36,000) it has been modified: 2019-08-23 di desallcom

The Swiss tradition of producing Emmentaler AOP cheese has for centuries focused on the art of cheese-making, on the skill of the artisan gesture and on the expertise of the Man-made Hand made with care: care of nature, time, matter, know-how and the vital energy of the environment in which we live.

In order to be able to continue reading, updating and interpreting its values ​​in an innovative, contemporary and disruptive manner, Emmentaler Switzerland has always been very attentive and interested in involving, supporting and promoting the world of arts, talent and widespread creativity.

As in other competitions, exhibitions and previous communication activities, Emmentaler Switzerland is launching a new, open creative competition for the collection, enhancement and display of a wide selection of thematic works and artworks.


In the last decades of new globalization, we have learned to appreciate both some values ​​and products widely common to many civilizations, and values ​​and products expressly linked to the geographical, historical and cultural origins of individual specific territories.

This announcement is interested in collecting, enhancing and displaying works and artworks that tell stories of Swiss originality. Originality understood both in the most precise, relevant and "Swiss" methods and contents, and in the more ironic, interpretative and disruptive methods and contents.
