Creative Europe: Commission publishes special call to support Ukrainian artists

The call supports artists outside their country, cultural organisations in Ukraine, and preparation for the post-war recovery of the Ukrainian cultural and creative sector in the medium term.

The European Commission has published a special call under the Creative Europe programme for Ukrainian artists worth €5 million.

Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said:

Cultural expression and access to culture are essential parts of our life. They help us deal with traumatic events, build individual and collective resilience and give us tools for mutual understanding. I am very pleased to know that we can contribute to help Ukrainians displaced by the war in Ukraine or in one of the participating countries to Creative Europe have access to culture.

Three projects will be selected for financing by consortia set up within countries associated to the Creative Europe programme. Ukrainian organisations will also contribute, giving grants to small-size initiatives implemented at grass root level.

The call is open until 29 November 2022.
