A name, a wink to the fertile link between cultures. As the cocoa bean that has crossed the ocean to become a tasty Swiss speciality.


Xocolat is a non-profit association for the mobility of creativity, based in Fribourg, Switzerland. Xocolat promotes artists, encounters and working dynamics in order to nurture creative endeavours to reverberate through the social weaving.

Xocolat was formed in 2017 on the basis of the involvement of its founding members in the local, national and international arts scene.

Xocolat’s activities have been supported both regionally and nationally in Switzerland, through artistic and scientific funds, and through the local community where it acts.


Given the internationality of the projects and with the aim of strengthening diversity and the meeting of cultures, since 2022 Xocolat has also been based in Spain, opening up to new artistic and creative dynamics.


President: Anne-Catherine Gillis

Secretary: Bera Romairone

Treasurer: Giuseppe Arbia
