Our Motto – "Open Ukraine for Yourself and for the World" 

Open Ukraine for Yourself

  • In Ukraine, we are working with a young generation of artists, scholars, and community leaders who seek to implement social changes in different regions. Ukrainian youth have great potential and we are trying to strengthen it.

Open Ukraine for the World

  • We support contemporary art initiatives and present them to the Ukrainian and international communities. The Open Ukraine Foundation promotes information distribution about the best examples of modern visual arts and literature from Ukraine within the European cultural space.
  • We see Ukraine as a potential regional leader in security. The Annual Kyiv Security Forum and the regular meetings of the Diplomatic Club are powerful platforms for international cooperation and for development of public diplomacy of Ukraine.
