Directorate of Cultural and Social Affairs

The activities of the Directorate of Cultural and Social Affairs of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives involve pursuing an innovative funding policy and supporting sustainable social projects. Active throughout all of Switzerland, it realises projects of national relevance, cooperates with partners and awards study prizes and prizes of encouragement as well as financial contributions.

Culture

True to the principles of Migros founder Gottlieb Duttweiler, the Migros Culture Percentage exists to give the broader public access to culture: the Culture division of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives devises and realises its own projects, such as the Migros Culture Percentage Classics concert series, the Migros Culture Percentage contemporary dance biennial Steps and m4music – the Migros Culture Percentage pop festival.

As an independent institution since 1996, the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst is a byword for the exhibition and collection of international contemporary art as well as art education.

The Culture division of the Federation of Migros Cooperatives also directly supports outstanding projects by awarding financial grants.

Co-management: Hedy Graber and Kerstin Klauser

Social Affairs

With its projects, financial contributions, collaboration projects and other engagements, the Social Affairs division makes a valuable contribution to social cohesion in Switzerland. It offers models and solutions for social challenges, raises seminal issues and plugs gaps wherever there are pressing social needs.
