The Prix de Lausanne is glad to collaborate with the following swiss and international cultural institutions:
Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)
EPFL is Europe’s most cosmopolitan technical university with students, professors and staff from over 120 nations. A dynamic environment, open to Switzerland and the world, EPFL is centered on its three missions: teaching, research and technology transfer. EPFL works together with an extensive network of partners including other universities and institutes of technology, developing and emerging countries, secondary schools and colleges, industry and economy, political circles and the general public, to bring about real impact for society.
Vidy Theatre is open to all and dedicated to contemporary creation, defining itself as a site of encounters between today’s art and the widest possible audience. Installed within a building built by the Zurich artist and architect Max Bill for the Swiss national exposition of 1964 (Expo64), it now contains four auditoriums and a vast foyer-bar opening onto the beach of Vidy, with a view over Lake Geneva and the Alps. For artists, it provides an exceptional workspace coupled with a solid production facility and a technical team with a broad range of expertise. For audiences, it provides the opportunity to share powerful artistic experiences, along with numerous events relating the works to major issues our society is currently undergoing.
