«We, cultural workers (artists, curators, art scholars, designers) based in Leipzig, kindly ask Leipzig cultural institutions to take urgent measures for our colleagues who are now fleeing from War. We suggest “opening spaces” for Ukrainian, Russian and Belarusian artists/curators/art scholars here in Leipzig. By that, we mean the provision of unbureaucratic and timely financial support such as artist fees and/or stipends or other types of financial support. Furthermore, it is important to create access to existing residency programs as well as workspaces and various opportunities for networking.
Additionally, it is crucial to us that the support takes into account the needs of mothers with young children, since this is rarely the focus of residency programs in the art sector. As you know, men aged 18-60 are currently not allowed to leave Ukraine. Here we see a particular need for action. [...]
Hopefully you will find resources to support this initiative. We kindly ask you to fill in information about the program of your institution here, so we can collect possibilities/resources and moderate the accommodation of the cultural workers from Kyiv and other cities in exile:
