About the foundation:
The "Peace for Art" Foundation is based in France and was created after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine to respond to the urgent need to help the artists there and to act to protect existing and future cultural heritage. Two priorities have been identified that will constitute the main mission of the Foundation: Protection and Creation. This will be organized around three main axes:
support for Ukrainian artists outside of Ukraine who use their art to denounce the situation and report on the situation in their home country
support for the artists who could not leave Ukraine or decided to stay there and go on creating and producing artworks despite the conflict
- support for cultural partners in the implementation of projects aimed at protecting the Ukrainian artistic and cultural heritage.
"Peace for Art" is meant to contribute to the creation of a safe space. Even if war does not totally prevent artists from creating, they do need available and stable infrastructures to make their art visible and support their production. The foundation aspires to provide this stability, to support art and culture in the broadest sense, including education. The foundation will support any cultural project aimed at enhancing Ukrainian culture and contributing to this safe space, regardless of nationality, and thus strengthen European culture.
