Who we are

Welcome to the LoftA46

Individually, we are professionals and parents; painters, graphic artists, photographers, advertising and marketing specialists, copywriters, musicians and established businesspersons. Collectively, we represent a global approach to revitalizing our community.

We are a small new association in the heart of beautiful Montreux Switzerland (home of the Montreux Jazz Festival) who’s aim is to promote art, music and culture. We are around 12 residents ranging from photo, video, arts, typograh, caligraphy, illustration, music and more!We do this out of love and support of the arts and to help develop an appreciation for the arts.

We have over 250m2 of space which is broken up into a 100m2 gallery/concert venue, a 50m2 offices, 100m2 workshop and a rehearsal/studio space for the musicians. We are revitalising the arts in our region and we feel we have an amazing oppotunity to develop this on a national and eventually international level considering the town we live in is an international brand for music!

Association LoftA46 supports, employs and works with local  artists working on diverse creative projects and creating a network of people from all different walks of life to collaborate on new artistic concepts and ideals.
