Creative Youth Grants

Creative Youth Grants


We believe Ukraine is talented. There is no lack of gifted people in the cities and villages, but there is a lack of funding and opportunities for them. To even this out we designed Creative Youth Grants.

These grants support projects helping young people in the regions to uncover their talents. These can be sound recording laboratories, inclusive theatre plays, movie camps, urban studies labs aiming to reimagine public spaces, and other projects allowing young people to create something on their own. A mentor from the EU will assist you in carrying out the project. A partner for you and an adviser for participants, they will bring in an international perspective. 

You can apply for an international cooperation grant once a year: in winter. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when your call opens.

This is for bringing inspiration to young creators

Share what inspires you with young people: design, urban studies, visual arts, performative art, or interdisciplinary approach. Provide the resources, knowledge, and motivation to create and watch how a new generation of Ukrainians commit to use their imagination to change society.

This is for projects you are keen to carry on

The main goal of the initiative is to help young people bring their ideas to life. Start from here to create a project you will be proud to mention in your organisation’s portfolio.

This is for cooperating with kindred spirits from the EU

You will work with a mentor: a young artist from the EU. They will offer an outside perspective on the project and help you engage the participants to the fullest. If you already have someone on your mind, let us know — we will try to arrange the cooperation.

This is for realising your potential in hometown

We finance projects outside the capital. Carry out the project in your region, town or village to activate artistic life and inspire the creative community to realise activities at home.

This is for Ukrainian organisations

These grants support Ukrainian organisations registered as legal entities with bright ideas. Non-governmental and charity organisations, governmental institutions, and private entrepreneurs can apply if they can receive financial aid.

This is for you!

We connect people and opportunities

We support professional and creative exchange between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. This encompasses 20+ programme lines managed by us and a constantly increasing database of the best opportunities offered by other European organizations. This is just the beginning: more opportunities, events and acquaintances are coming.

We are all over Ukraine

We are convinced that we should go where our support and information are needed the most: out in the regions. Organising Pop-Up Hubs, creative entrepreneurship in the regions is stimulated, whereas the Mobile Pavilion sets our concept on the move.
