Help Ukraine Creatives
So many creative talented people have left their country and are trying to start a new life - at least temporarily - in other parts of Europe. Others have fled to safer areas and are trying to support their country from within. This is a strong workforce - without work or purpose.
Asylum does offer a degree of protection and material security, but many creatives, agency employees and media professionals simply need jobs/projects. They want to work. They want to support their own media, their own agency, the Ukrainian media landscape/economy and their state with their performance and taxes. They have stressed this many times when we asked them.
We have to support not only independent democratic journalism of Ukrainian origin but also creative service providers in order to save the media industry in Ukraine.
We must give people jobs for which they are qualified. Only then can they continue to contribute to creating media products that objectively inform the Ukrainian as well as the global audience about this criminal war.
These creatives need projects so that they can stay in their profession and return to Ukraine when the war is over and it is time to rebuild. Our colleagues don't want donations, they want to be able to do their job.
We as an association want to call on our whole industry to give projects to Ukraine. We want to create a network and give our Ukrainian contacts, because that helps the most now.
Please check if you also have projects that you can do together with a Ukrainian agency or a Ukrainian freelancer. This way we can provide useful support. We are happy to act as intermediaries.
Please simply contact us at HelpUkraineCreatives@eeofe.org. We are collecting project proposals, cooperation ideas, job ads, and anything else that can help.

"Today we are appealing to you with a favor for help.
As of February 24th, 2022, Russia meanly invaded Ukraine. Russian forces continuously destroy the Ukrainian economy and infrastructure, kill civilians and deprive millions of Ukrainians of their homes, as well as of their normal life.
Being a Ukrainian agency and dealing mostly with Ukrainian businesses we have lost almost all contracts, as well as agency livelihood.
Since the very beginning of the war, we proceeded with developing a wide range of communicational materials to support the spirit of Ukrainians and spread worldwide the truth about the war.
We are not looking for donations or charity, but we are looking for real working projects. We made sure that our team is safe and settled and we are ready to start working.
Our goal is to save the team of 80 creative professionals as well as to help the Ukrainian economy by paying taxes, salaries, etc.
We are great in qualitative communication, design, and content. We do brand strategies and brand books from scratch.
Moreover, recently we have opened the social media department where we were taking care of Netflix accounts and UX/UI and digital department which is taking care of the websites and application development.
Below is the link to our portfolio with recent projects:
We would be very grateful if you could share with us some projects and we could make it together. As it seems like a good way to help Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian economy.
Please, don't hesitate to contact us to discuss a potential collaboration."
"Being founded in Ukraine in 2014, Blue Carrot is proud of foreign clients who continue/start doing business with Ukrainian teams during these historic days.
Ukraine has one of the leading IT and Computer Graphics industries in the world, which serves as a key pillar of Ukraine’s economy and resistance. To support our country in every possible way we continue working in order to fuel the national economy with currency and provide working places. You can help Ukraine by working with local service providers. I personally have a network of verified programmers, designers, VR/AR specialists, performance marketers, video productions and others, and I would be happy to make an introduction.
As for Blue Carrot, nowadays our producers and artists work remotely from Ukraine, the UK, Ireland, Poland, Armenia, and other countries. Most of our Ukrainian team is located in the very west of the country - in the city of Lviv. Today we keep delivering projects and are taking new ones.
That said, on behalf of our team and Ukrainians, I would like to thank all the citizens and governments that support us. That means so much for us during these challenging days. Be sure, we are doing and will do our best to kick russian terrorists out of our motherland and stop their European invasion."

AIR – ARTIST IN RESIDENCE Lower Austria
A multi-disciplinary program for architects, visual artists, musicians and writers.
Now, in the age of globalization and in the face of today’s fast-past-paced cultural knowledge transfer, it is more important than ever to strive for a cross-cultural dialogue based on tolerance and mutual respect. In order to promote international exchange, the federal state of Lower Austria has initiated an artist-in-residence program, for which it has set up five studio apartments and a large common room within the Kunstmeile Krems. The studio apartments, which have housed artists from many different countries, serve as temporary living and working spaces and provide the opportunity for both international and interdisciplinary exchange.
In order to ensure diversity and a multidisciplinary exchange, the program will award its scholarships to artists from the fields of visual arts, literature, architecture and music.
Essential for this Program is to promote partnerships with international institutions that award artist scholarships and provide studios to visiting artists should give artists from Lower Austria the opportunities for living and working abroad.
