In Austria, the Federal Ministry of Arts, Culture, Civil Service and Sports, together with the "Office Ukraine - Shelter for Ukrainian Artists" initiative, will provide € 200,000 to support 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."

The amount will be distributed in two ways: project financing - 5 thousand euros, or as a scholarship - 1400 euros for 3 months.

"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.

"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."
