In 2013, artasfoundation acted as intermediary between the Swiss Binz 39 Foundation and the Georgian Center of Contemporary Art Tbilisi to set up an exchange programme for visual artists and curators from Switzerland and Georgia. Every year, two visual artists or curators were selected to receive a three-month residency grant for Zurich or Tbilisi. A jury specific to each country selected applicants from the other country.
Once the programme was created the mediation role of artasfoundation ended. The first scholarship was awarded in September 2013 and the exchange ran very successfully until 2018.
