The war in Ukraine has shaken the lives of its people to its very core, threatening freedom, peace and democracy.
This crisis is showing us the strength and cohesion that we can deploy in record time, and that together we can form a united front to defend our shared values.
It’s time to support Ukrainian citizens, artists, cultural professionals and all those affected by this invasion. We cannot forget that this war does not represent the will of all Russians, and we urge those opposing this aggression to continue being vocal.
The Liveurope platform was created to get together through music and culture, and today represents a union of live music venues committed to the diversity, promotion, and mobility of artists through Europe.
As a member of the initiative, we welcome the recent waves of solidarity and cooperation that have emerged in reaction to unjustified attacks. That is why we want to echo some of the meaningful actions that are being organized by the music and cultural sector in response to the crisis, as well as ways you can provide assistance to the people of Ukraine.
The Liveurope venues in the region have quickly developed new activities to raise money, and to put their resources and premises at the disposal of refugees. Here’s their ongoing efforts (we we will continue updating this page as the crisis continues to unfold).
Nová Cvernovka (Bratislava) have put their artists’ accommodation facilities at the disposal of Ukrainian refugees, helped organise the benefit festival Koncert pre Ukrajinu (Concert for Ukraine), and are hosting a series of film screenings, theatre pieces and debates on the crisis.
Palác Akropolis (Prague) are organising the Rap Pro Ukrajinu (Rap for Ukraine) concert evening with all proceeds going directly to Ukrainians in need.
Stodoła (Warsaw) are collecting donations for food, clothes, medication and other urgent items.
A group of European cultural organizations came together to call on world leaders to support cultural cooperation with Ukraine at all costs. We have proudly endorsed the open letter and urge other organisations, cultural professionals and citizens to sign it too.
Music Export Ukraine has created a collection of resources and information on how the music sector can help the people of Ukraine through the crisis. Find it all through this link.
