Shelter for Ukrainian Artists
»Office Ukraine. Shelter for Ukrainian Artists« has been set up for Ukrainian artists and cultural workers in all disciplines fleeing war in Ukraine and seeking shelter in Austria. It serves as a liaison between them and the Austrian art scene.
We help to connect Ukrainian artists and cultural workers with cultural institutions and initiatives as well as artists all over Austria: residencies, galleries, museums, off-spaces, design studios, film organizations, literature and music venues, funds, etc.
We assist in finding accommodation, studio places, residencies, and internships; provide information on applying to university as well as exhibition, concert, and other opportunities; and try to help in finding jobs and grants. As a mediating platform, our aim is to connect those who offer support with Ukrainian artists in need.
»Office Ukraine. Shelter for Ukrainian Artists« is operated by independent arts institutions and has offices in Vienna (MuseumsQuartier), Graz (< rotor >), and Innsbruck (Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen). We have a broad network and are happy to share information and contacts.
Our foremost goal is to enable displaced artists and cultural workers to pursue their practice and to fuel artistic collaboration between artists from Ukraine and Austria on a long-term basis.
»Office Ukraine. Shelter for Ukrainian Artists« has been created in cooperation with civil society, tranzit.at, < rotor > Center for Contemporary Art, Künstlerhaus Büchsenhausen, springerin, and other initiatives. We closely cooperate with the BMKÖS (Austrian Federal Ministry for Arts, Culture, the Civil Service and Sports), tranzit.at, BMEIA (Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs), the MuseumsQuartier Wien, and FREIRAUM UKRAINE.
