Connecting art, activism and change

Art Contact Ukraine is a curatorial platform created in Vienna in 2022 by an artist and art curator Yana Gryniv. The platform facilitates collaboration between artists, cultural/governmental/diplomatic institutions, and activists to address burning issues. 
We bring awareness so that others can bring change.
The scope of our activity is defined through conceptual art combined with intangible cultural heritage of Ukraine. 
Our activity is based in Austria and Ukraine, however, we are open to zooming our activity to other countries as well.
