Infrastructure Grants fund technical equipment needed to carry out projects, living up the everyday lives of communities. The basic things organisations in towns and villages cannot afford: computers, tablets, smartphones, photo and video cameras, microphones, and apps for study and creativity. The material things giving birth to spiritual — contemporary Ukrainian art.
A video camera complemented by a microphone will turn a city theatre into a space for actors’ experiments and a hot spot for locals to spend the weekends enjoying modern plays. A powerful laptop might be enough to reshape a village hall into a stage for talks by change agents and an alternative to evening TV for countrymen. We believe these transformations are possible, and the only element missing is infrastructure. Therefore we offer up to EUR 9,000 on technical tools to active cultural organisations that know where to start.
We open calls for Infrastructure Grants once a year — in the spring. Follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear the updates.
This is for activating the lives of residents of Ukrainian cities and villages
We are looking for initiatives designed with the needs of the local community in mind. They should answer the question of where to spend weekday evenings, add new locations on the cultural map, create opportunities for creativity and advancement. As regional cities and villages have less developed infrastructure, we prioritise their applications.
This is for organisations that define the cultural life of their cities or villages
Grants support organisations that matter to the local art scene: provide them with opportunities to work more effectively and intensely. Libraries, art centres, museums, art centres, and hobby groups can purchase the equipment to carry out a new project or elevate their everyday activities.
This is for purchasing the tools that will help you carry out several important projects
Opt for a gadget that will come in handy in carrying out your big ideas for several years. It should be multifunctional: for example, a laptop you will use both to draft the programme of the course on the history of film and present the slides during the actual lectures.
