Zapravka initiative


Together with Ukrainian Cultural Foundation and Ukrainian Institute House of Europe launch the initiative to integrate Ukrainian art residencies into the international context. We share our proficiency, professional contacts, and research to advance the residency scene. 


Researching for a more apt support

We aim to outline the residencies landscape in Ukraine and understand what kind of support they need. To define this, we conducted mapping and questionnaire surveys. The insights we gained became the blueprint for analytical articles and helped us design better programmes for Ukrainian art residencies.


Putting Ukrainian art residencies on the international map

We cooperate with the biggest art residencies database DutchCulture|TransArtists to enrich it with more Ukrainian residencies. We are here to consult you on drafting your profile for the website and to connect you with the platform. For emerging residencies, we have the mentions in news articles on TransArtists.


Advising art residencies in meeting the international standards

We designed a toolkit with a step-by-step guide to organising, promoting, and holding an art residency. The toolkit is based on insights from 15 in-depth interviews with major art residencies from Kyiv, Dnipro, Kharkiv, Uzhhorod, Mariupol, Muzychi, and Travneve. For other questions, contact us for an individual consultation.


Making sure artists hop on the best residencies out there

We stimulate Ukrainian and international artists and arts managers to participate in the residencies: announce the most interesting offers and share tips on how to draft the documents to apply successfully.
