From May to November, the Season of Culture brings together a diverse community of artists, creators, and educators from both countries to explore our cultures, our planet, our relationship with digital technologies, and what the future holds for all those involved in cultural processes. The theme of the Season of Culture — Future reimagined.

The UK/Ukraine Season of Culture 2022 will include an intensive programme of art events. Ukrainian Institute see the Season of Culture as an opportunity to represent Britain in Ukraine and Ukraine in Britain, bridging the geographical distance between our countries through the best projects in music, theatre, cinematography, publishing, fashion, visual arts, and the full range of creative sectors. Audiences will be able to enjoy it through innovative offline, online, and hybrid formats.

Two parties will create opportunities to help Ukrainian and British artists and organisations make new contacts and develop partnerships. We strive to promote valuable experiences and collaborations that have bold, fresh and inspiring ideas at their core.

Ukraine and the UK will continue to work together to build closer links in Higher Education. The UK will support reform of English language teaching in Ukraine’s education system, including the New Ukrainian School reform. The new Future English programme will provide research, consultancy and continuing professional development to the Ministry of Education and Science, and a new Online Teacher Community to provide opportunities for up to 25,000 teachers throughout Ukraine over the next three years.
