How can we help?

As published in our official statement regarding the situation in Ukraine, European Dancehouse Network will support any possibility for the artists of Ukraine to find refuge, support and work tools in Europe. 

EDN sent out the survey to its members to collect more information about the current status of their support activities to Ukrainian colleagues. Based on this information, EDN is updating the list of initiatives and funding opportunities which could help the Ukraininian artists community.

We kindly ask to let us know whether the listed information is perhaps outdated or if you are familiar with other initiatives as well. Please send the email to Rok Avbar, EDN Communication and Dissemination Officer.

Please keep in mind the lists can change within hours. If you notice a factual mistake, broken hyperlink and similar, please let us know in order to resolve the issue.
