Since the start of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, most Ukrainian cultural institutions, creative professionals, and artists have changed their focus to the direct help to the members of their local communities, working with internally displaced people, involvement in cultural diplomacy, supporting Ukrainian defenders, preservation of cultural heritage, documentation and reflection on the horrors of the war.
Cultural activities help increase the resilience and adaptivity of community members during wartime, and youth work provides younger community members with educational and leisure activities, allowing their parents to tackle war-related problems. Being one of the most active groups in society, Ukrainian cultural professionals immediately started developing and implementing activities in their base geographical locations or small communities hosting internally displaced people.
As part of the second wave of the ZMINA 2.0 project, with the European Union's financial support, 42 cultural projects were supported to restore cultural life and support culture in local communities as a component of Ukraine's struggle for freedom and independence.
