The two-day workshop will get you prepared for any scenario. You will draft a cultural transformation strategy for your hromada during the war and design an action plan for the times after Ukraine's victory. Experienced cultural managers Ihor Harmash and Mariya Yaremchuk will be there for you.

The Lab is carried out by Goethe-Institut Ukraine in partnership with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine. The programme is funded by the EU under the House of Europe programme.
