Since its foundation in 1949, ECAV has established a significant practice of international research, art production and pedagogy. Situated in the alpine, post-industrial city of Sierre, over the years, the communities,  landscape and cultural situation where the art school is situated has become one of its central  research angles based on a transdisciplinary approach, interventions in the public sphere, and a clear attention to the students’ research.

Since 2001, the Hansjoerg Wyss Scholarship is granted every year to 5 to 6 students from Africa, Asia or Latin America and allow them to undertake a Bachelor or a Master degree at the Ecole cantonale d'Art du Valais (ECAV).
The Hansjoerg Wyss Scholarship covers school fees, accommodation, and a contributory stipend.
