“Culture Helps / Культура допомагає”: Collaboration grants for integration through culture results – third call

In March, “Culture Helps / Культура допомагає” — a project co-funded by the EU Creative Europe Programme and implemented by Insha Osvita (UA) and zusa (DE) — opened the third and final call for applications for collaboration grants fostering international partnership. 

The Collaboration grants programme offers support for cultural organisations that emphasises work with people, who have been forced to move to safer regions of Ukraine or Creative Europe countries (all EU Member States as well as certain non-EU countries) because of russia’s war against Ukraine. The grant supports collaborations between organisations that are focused on displaced people or refugees, work on facilitating their integration into new contexts through culture to promote dialogue and mutual understanding, and offer activities that respond to processing war trauma and support their mental health.

During the third open call, we received 146 applications. The jury selected 10 partnerships that will be supported with the grant and mentoring programme. Additionally, the grantees will take part in a series of activities dedicated to mental health awareness and support in the cultural field,and in an offline networking meeting. 

We are very much looking forward to following the collaborative journey of all the organisations!

Fundacja Good Culture (PL) + Volyn Prospects (UA)
