IZOLYATSIA is looking for experts to conduct evaluation of performance of the ZMINA 2.0 project and ensure accountability towards the donor and public.

Following the full scale war initiated on 24 February 2022 by the Russian Federation against Ukraine, an urgent need arose to provide emergency and resilience assistance to the Ukrainian authorities and the population.  So we repurpose our project objectives and activities by foreseeing emergency assistance  to the war-affected population and to supporting cultural CSOs, cultural institutions etc, activists and local authorities in charge of culture in Ukraine, artists, creators or cultural professionals  for continuing cultural life and as a part of the national fight for freedom and independence.

Within Activity 2 Third-party funding scheme supporting cultural projects 27 projects were funded and implemented and 44 more projects will be implemented by the end of the project as of July, 24 2023.
