Office Ukraine.
Support for Ukrainian Artists

“Office Ukraine. Support for Ukrainian Artists” was founded just a few days after the start of Russia’s large-scale war of aggression against Ukraine on February 24, 2022, in violation of international law. The initiative supports Ukrainian artists and cultural workers of all disciplines who fled from Ukraine to Austria to escape the Russian invasion. As a mediation platform, our aim is to bring Ukrainian artists who need support into contact with those who offer support.

We connect Ukrainian artists and cultural professionals with cultural institutions, initiatives and artists of all disciplines throughout Austria: including museums, galleries, off-spaces, design studios, film initiatives, literature and music education centers, and many more. We help with the search for exhibition and performance opportunities, studio spaces, jobs and internships. We also use our mailing list to provide information about scholarship opportunities, university application options, artists residencies and open calls, as well as interesting events and can sometimes offer free tickets to the Ukrainian art community.

The most important goal of Office Ukraine, which is represented throughout Austria with a total of three offices in Vienna ( in the MuseumsQuartier Wien, Graz (< rotor >) and Innsbruck (Künstler:innenhaus Büchsenhausen), is to enable displaced artists and cultural workers to continue their artistic work in their respective fields and to promote long-term artistic collaboration between artists from Ukraine and the Austrian art scene.

Since its inception, Office Ukraine has been contacted by more than 1,700 Ukrainian artists and cultural professionals and has worked with more than 270 local and international art institutions and initiatives as well as many individual supporters.

Office Ukraine was founded in cooperation with the BMKOES (Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sport), civil society,, < rotor > Center for Contemporary Art, Künstler:innenhaus Büchsenhausen, springerin and other initiatives.
