Cultural Aid Ukraine

Baden-Württemberg takes up offers of help from the cultural scene for refugee artists and their families from Ukraine. Together with the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts Baden-Württemberg, a contact point was established by ifa as an initial measure, which both artists from Ukraine and cultural institutions in Baden-Württemberg could use. The initial project was concluded in February 2023, a continuation is being considered.
