Creative Europe announces two winners of its call to support Ukrainian displaced artists

The first two winners of the open call for ‘Support to Ukrainian displaced people and the Ukrainian Cultural and Creative Sectors’ of the EU-funded Creative Europe programme have been announced.

Two consortium projects, each of which has a Ukrainian participant organisation, have been confirmed.

The first of these is ‘ZMINA: REBUILDING’ by @IZOLYATSIA. It will provide €1.4 million as sub-grants to support minimum 40 projects developing concrete practices contributing to wartime resilience and post-war recovery in Ukraine and increasing the visibility of Ukrainian cultural and creative works in Ukraine and abroad.

The second winner is ‘Culture Helps’ by ‘Insha Osvita’ (“Інша Освіта”). The consortium will help people from Ukraine who have been displaced by the war, especially families and children, with integration into their new communities through cultural activities. It will offer sub-grants to support mental health, organising online and offline workshops and meetings for displaced cultural professionals both in Ukraine and in exile as well as their peers in other Creative Europe countries.

The third winner will be announced shortly.

The projects will be implemented during 2023 – 2025 and will announce soon the sub-grant calls for proposals.

The Creative Europe call aimed to prepare post-war recovery measures for the Ukrainian culture and creative sectors as well as to help Ukrainian artists and cultural organisations in creating and demonstrating their projects in Ukraine and in the ‘Creative Europe’ countries. 

The total budget of the open call is €5 million.
