International Cooperation Grants

International Cooperation Grants


You are a cultural institution. You have an excellent idea for a collaborative project with another institution and a strong aspiration to bring it to life. One of you is a Ukrainian other is a European, or there are more than two Ukrainian or European organisations interested in working together. If so, we have the grant to cover the expenses of your project.

We will fund a project because we support cultural exchanges between Ukrainians and their EU colleagues. We believe that a collaborative project can become the beginning of long-lasting cooperation and enrich members of both institutions professionally. We want to internationalise the Ukrainian art scene and see International Cooperation Grants as a way to achieve this.

You can apply for an International Cooperation Grant twice a year: in spring and autumn. Follow this page or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know when your call opens.

This is for impactful and timely ideas

Create anything: a cold-wave music festival, a contemporary art exhibition, or a conference on urban studies featuring intellectuals from Ukraine and the EU. We will support any initiative, as long as it resonates with the needs of Ukrainian society and makes a difference.

This is for projects that involve digital technologies

Hold festivals, exhibitions, and concerts online, or top up in-person events with digital elements. Technology might not be the centrepiece of your project, but should definitely be a piece of it.

This is for cultural organisations from Ukraine and the EU

International Cooperation Grants support public non-profit organisations in the sphere of culture and creative industries. We value bright ideas first, but we also care whether you have relevant experience and a portfolio of projects.

This is for Ukrainian audiences and culture

We aim to boost Ukrainian culture and provide local audiences with entrancing projects to enjoy. Choose Ukraine as a location for in-person events and take care of translation into Ukrainian for online formats. You can still carry out events in the EU if they are elements of a more complex activity held in Ukraine.

This is for different teams: from small to highly multicultural

You can carry out a project with only one partner or invite other organisations from the EU, the UK, and post-Soviet countries to join in. The more diverse the team, the better.

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.
