Direct donations requested in support of Ukrainian Relief Efforts
Performance art depends on a strong connection with the society and even in peaceful times is very precarious. In the time of war, the artists staying in Ukraine don’t have options to make a living from giving classes, performing or from other regular jobs. The only way of surviving today is to live from rapidly evaporating or non-existent savings and mutual support which includes sharing food and donations to the initiatives in our frameworks. This is crucial for being able to deal with the urgency of the situations and to continue artistic work in such dramatic conditions.
Donations will allow us to help Ukrainian artists within two programs.
First program is providing an emergency relief grant of 8000 UAH (approximately $215) to each Ukrainian artist (dance and theater domain) from an independent scene, staying in Ukraine, upon request.
Second program is focused on providing support to the artistic teams of Ukrainian artists (dance and theater domain) from independent scene staying in Ukraine to continue their artistic process to create new art-works in form of performances premiered live or online in video format.
With your help, we give psychological and psychosocial support to children who suffered as a result of war operations. More than 50 psychologists are already working with us. We are helping to evacuate families with children, seeking housing for them, providing them with food and clothing. Please support us so that more children and their families suffering from war receive psychological help and can find shelter.
Thank you for your support!
