Creative Europe and the European Commission publish a special call to support Ukrainian artists. The call supports artists outside their country, cultural organisations in Ukraine, and preparation for the post-war recovery of the Ukrainian cultural and creative sector in the medium term.
- The objective of the special call is to help the Ukrainian cultural and creative organisations, as well as artists and professionals to address the following challenges in the short and medium term.
- Support Ukrainian artists and cultural organisations to create and showcase their art and works in Ukraine and in Creative Europe participating countries.
- Help Ukrainians displaced by the war, in particular children, in Ukraine or Creative Europe participating countries, have access to culture and/or facilitate their integration into their new communities through culture. In this context, adequate attention should be given to the consequences which the war inflicted on mental health.
- Prepare the post-war recovery of the Ukrainian cultural sectors through needs assessments, capacity building and investment planning and train Ukrainian cultural heritage professionals with regard to the protection of Ukrainian cultural heritage.
- Grants will be provided to a consortium of organisations implementing activities for the benefit of a wider number of stakeholders (i.e., organisations and/or individuals). It will also support activities implemented by third parties.
- Eligible sub-projects may be submitted by a single eligible applicant or by a consortium based in a Creative Europe country.
- Support will be given to three projects: Max €2,000,000 to address objective 1.a: support Ukrainian artists and cultural organisations to create and showcase their art and works. Proposals addressing this objective should demonstrate through adequate experience a good capacity to finance a large number of small projects through cascading grants.
- Max €2,000,000 to address objective 1.b: help through culture Ukrainians displaced by the war, in particular children, in Ukraine or Creative Europe participating countries to have access to culture and/or facilitate their reciprocal integration into their new communities through culture. Proposals addressing this objective should demonstrate through adequate experience a good capacity to finance a large number of small projects through cascading grants.
- Max €1,000,000 to address objective 2 – medium term (including both 2.a - post-war recovery of the Ukrainian cultural sectors and 2.b - prepare and train Ukrainian cultural heritage professionals).
- Ukrainian organisations will also contribute, giving grants to small-size initiatives implemented at grass root level.

- The purpose is to re-distribute the project funds to finance sub-projects implemented by cultural and creative actors addressing one of the two specific objectives (1.a or 1.b). Cascading grants may be given via a financial donation to natural persons (e.g. allowance, scholarship, fellowship) or legal persons (public or private organisations, including NGOs), seed money to start-ups or, or other forms.
- The financial support to third parties per sub-project should be of a maximum amount of EUR 60 000. Funding of 100% of the sub-project’s total costs through the financial support to third parties (with no co-financing required) should be allowed considering the current geopolitical context.
