Visualise is a long-term programme by the Ukrainian Institute aimed at supporting exhibition projects outside of Ukraine.
The programme provides opportunities of co-programming, co-financing and communications support to international exhibitions that contribute to promoting the art of Ukraine globally and establishing institutional partnerships.
Art exhibitions are essential platforms for discussing the most pressing issues of today that foster collaborations between artists, curators and other art professionals around the world. As such, they have become a powerful element of cultural diplomacy.
International exhibition projects require long-term planning and consistent institutional involvement. That is why the Visualise programme offers a multifaceted support including not only co-financing but also the involvement of the Ukrainian Institute’s team in the programming and the communications strategy of the selected projects.
In 2021, the Ukrainian Institute is launching the second open call for project proposals. The maximum financing per project is up to one million UAH (~30,350 EUR).
The target countries are Poland, Germany, France, UK, USA, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Turkey, Japan, Qatar, China, and United Arab Emirates. The Ukrainian Institute reserves the right to implement exhibition projects in other countries on a case-by-case basis.
The start of proposed projects should be scheduled no earlier than 1 April 2022.
