CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

Invitations to and discounts on major cultural events

We can offer you invitations, discounts and even half-price membership for some of the most prestigious cultural institutions in and around Geneva. Our partners include: Théâtre de Carouge, Comédie de Genève, Musika, and a number of other museums and galleries. Members will receive personal invitations and offers by email.

La Culture à l’UNIGE

The University has a number of cultural organizations that put on events and performances in an array of artistic fields. Subject to availability, all UNIGE cultural activities are open to alumni at preferential rates.

The Ciné-Club

The Ciné-Club is one of the most popular. It was set up more than 60 years ago by Claude Goretta, Alain Tanner and Jean Mohr and runs three programmes of film screenings each year.

Cultural events

A number of one-off events, demonstrations, shows, conferences and screenings are regularly produced throughout the year.

To never miss any of their news, we invite you to register on culture.unige.ch. You will then be able to subscribe to the weekly cultural newsletter.

Alumni trips

Tours and excursions

We organize a range of tours, excursions and other trips for our members. These trips are about more than just sightseeing – they are cultural and educational experiences that provide members with an opportunity to network with other Alumni. They are also a chance for other members of the UNIGE community to share their knowledge and know-how.

Educational trips with researchers and professors

We organize trips with a UNIGE researcher or professors as your guide. These trips may take place close to home or further afield – some of them last an evening, others several weeks. They can cover anything from culture and history to natural phenomena and research facilities.

Our trips

You can find out more about each destination by clicking on the link in the right column. Please note that places for these trips are limited – we keep the groups small so that you can make the most out of the experience and your guide. But we do try to ensure that we repeat the most popular trips whenever possible.

Exhibition tours

Guided exhibition tours

We regularly organize tours of exhibitions, either with a UNIGE professor or another expert. The Fondation Opale, the Fondation Gianadda, the Musée d’ethnographie de Genève, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum and the Musée d’art et d’histoire are just some of our regular destinations. And let’s not forget the UNIGE gallery, where we give guided tours of every single exhibition.
