Local Events Grants

Ukraine is not limited to Kyiv only. Ukraine is all the cities, towns, and villages out there in the regions. To ensure culture thrives there even amid the full-scale invasion, we launched the Local Events Grants. 

Get up to EUR 10,000 to bring the long-awaited musical festival, urban workshop, media forum, book fair or young photography exhibition to your city.   

Join the Facebook live stream on 15 May at 14.00 to learn about the pitfalls and ask your question to the grant manager.
