The European Commission is well aware of the importance of cultural and creative industries for the development not only of a sustainable society but also of the creative economy in general. Individual creativity and talent contribute to economic well-being, as well as encourage and strengthen social cohesion, which is especially important today.

Involvement in European cultural processes is very important for Ukraine. That is why the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy fully supports the participation of our country in European programmes and initiatives in the cultural sector, promotes networking between professionals and encourages creative exchanges and other forms of cooperation between artists in the cultural and creative industries. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we do not lose contacts and continue cultural and creative cooperation and exchange of experiences online.

For Ukraine's cultural and creative industries, the European Union’s Creative Europe programme is a great opportunity to cooperate with partners from other countries participating in the programme and create joint projects of European level.

Successful projects
Participation in the Creative Europe programme gives a unique opportunity for the festival to be held at this difficult time for the world, when many festivals have been cancelled due to the pandemic and related restrictive measures. This is a new experience for us, because in 2020, for the first time in history, the OIFF was held online.

Creative Europe is one of the programmes that gives you an opportunity to implement long-term art projects and build partnerships across Europe that can give funding for large-scale projects.
Bohdan Hrytsiuk
Face to Faith project manager
The programme allows you to gain experience in joint implementation of projects with at least three international partners, expand the professional network, present the idea to the audience of several countries and, of course, provides financial support for several years. But the most important thing is the possibility of long-term planning and development of managerial competencies for cultural projects.

Our special projects in media
We achieved our goal in 2017, and together with eight partners received a grant for the project "Emergence: Reframing Memory". Within its framework, we work in the direction of performing arts, organizing events in different countries on the interaction of individuals with cultural and historical landscapes. Fees for artists, travelling, hosting, making props and organizing exhibition - Creative Europe programme supports all our project activities.

The most interesting thing for producers is that Creative Europe programme allows you to get a grant to develop a project. Meaning, when you already have a clear understanding of the scenario, but it is not finalized yet and many questions arise. There is a lack of communication with historians, psychologists or when we show social-political riots - with specialists who study the psychology of protests. It is difficult to fill such gaps in knowledge by yourself.

Participation in the programme is a great experience and practice of cooperation with European structures, organization of internal discipline. All work is done online and therefore it is necessary to have at least an average level of knowledge of English.
