Infrastructure Grants fund facilities needed to carry out projects, living up the everyday lives of communities. The basic things organisations in towns and villages cannot afford: basic furniture, computers, acoustic systems, photo and video cameras, microphones, and apps for study and creativity. The material things giving birth to spiritual — contemporary Ukrainian art.
A new acoustic system complemented by a microphone will turn an abandoned hall in the village council into a practice room for local bands and a hot spot for locals to spend the weekends enjoying concerts. A projector and a bunch of comfy bean bag chairs might be enough to reshape a headquarter of a local organisation into a stage for talks by change agents and an alternative to evening TV for countrymen. We believe these transformations are possible, and the only element missing is infrastructure. Therefore we offer up to EUR 10,000 to active cultural NGOs that know where to start.
We open calls for Infrastructure Grants twice a year — in the spring and in the autumn. Follow us on social media or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear the updates.
This is for activating the lives of residents of Ukrainian cities and villages
We are looking for initiatives designed with the needs of the local community in mind. They should answer the question of where to spend weekday evenings, add new locations on the cultural map, create opportunities for creativity and advancement. As regional cities and villages have less developed infrastructure, we prioritise their applications.
This is for non-governmental organisations that define the cultural life of their cities or villages
Grants support organisations that matter to the local art scene: provide them with opportunities to work more effectively and intensely. Non-governmental organisations working in the sphere of culture can purchase the equipment to carry out a new project or elevate their everyday activities.
This is for purchasing facilities that will help you carry out several important projects
Opt for multifunctional pieces that will come in handy in carrying out your big ideas for years. For example, a projector you will use when holding open-air film screenings in the summer and when hosting cinema history talks indoors in the winter.
This is for you!
We are all over Ukraine
