Valais School of Art (édhéa)

The édhéa - Valais School of Art is situated in Southern Switzerland. The school offers a Bachelor in Fine Arts and a Master of Arts in Public Spheres. With a strong tradition in practice-based research, the édhéa proposes a transdisciplinary and experimental approach to art that opens many doors beyond those of an artist’s studio. The focus on sound art, performance, environmental art, socially-engaged and community practices, prepares for a variety of professions in the fields of visual culture.

The striking Valais alpine situation provides a unique studying environment that is an ideal site for focused, in-depth studies and at the same time connected to the country’s major urban centres.
