Header Image Curve - Space for artists

Element 1

Invitation to artists from Switzerland and the wider world to enjoy creative stays of 2 to 6 months in one of the most beautiful mountain valleys in the Alps, the Goms in the canton of Valais, Switzerland. We particularly welcome painters, sculptors, film and video artists, writers, architects, industrial and fashion designers, as well as composers. Preservation of the old fabric of the buildings (15th-19th century)


by converting them to studios and workshops for artists. Support from community organisations in Goms for the development and running of regional centres for artistic activities. Building up a collection of works by artists who have been and will continue to be active in the region by way of a contribution to tourism in the region.
