Project Funding
Stabilisation Fund for Culture and Education in Ukraine

The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine has not only had a dramatic impact on cultural life in the country. The work of artists, cultural and media professionals and civil society initiatives has become threatened or impossible in many respects.

The Stabilisation Fund 2023 for Culture and Education is a project of the Goethe-Institut to sustainably strengthen the resilience of cultural and educational partners in Ukraine and is currently still subject to the approval of the project funds by the Federal Foreign Office.
