JOIN US 28 JAN - 12 FEB 2022


The Verbier Art Summit Membership Platform is a year-round invitation to join our international group of visionaries in the art world. Coming from diverse backgrounds and interests, their shared goal is to drive social change through art.

The Platform comes together – by invitation only – every winter in Verbier, Switzerland for a weekend of innovation. The annual programme is organised in partnership with an acclaimed museum director each year around urgent themes at the intersection of art and society.

The Verbier Art Summit Membership Platform brings together 100 influential leaders in the art world, each invited based on their achievement in art and innovation. Together, we will envision and realise new futures through art, enabling today’s most important voices to take action.


The interdisciplinary nature of the international non-profit platform educates, provokes and inspires not only the art but also the wider community. 


By transforming the annual Summit into hybrid event and broadcasting the programme through a digital platform, we will reach people from all over the world and building a large movement to drive social change through art.

Members are involved in year-round brainstorm sessions, forming a strong, committed art community that sponsor and drive the development of the Verbier Art Summit, with support from top art world stakeholders.


The Verbier Art Summit Membership Platform connects at the beginning of the year during the in-person event in Verbier, through intimate dining experiences of small groups in private chalets before and after the debates, coming together again for a special closing presentation and dinner on Saturday at the W Hotel. 


The Verbier Art Summit Membership Platform attend an extended programme of moderated debates held in private chalets by high level art world stakeholders, such as a museum director or curator at a top international museum.


The debates are carefully curated for intimate groups of 20-25 Members in order to optimise new initiatives and collaborations from the inspiring space and time in Verbier. 



Leading artists, museum directors, academics and thought leaders come from around the world to speak at the Verbier Art Summit.
Each speaker is invited by the partnering director to explore the theme.


The inspiration doesn’t stop after the talks. The Member programme offers special cultural events by the Summits partners during the Summit event and throughout the year. 


The Summit would like to further engage local communities by organising a series of ‘Micro-Summits’ at museums all over the world, to build local action around the annually changing Summit theme, accelerating the innovation, education and inspiration processes at a global level.
