PEN Ukraine together with PEN Belarus, Polish PEN Club and Open Culture Foundation is organizing a public fundraiser to support the creative community of Ukraine.
The funds will go to help Ukrainian writers, journalists, scholars, translators, and artists who have found themselves under threat as a result of the Russian war against Ukraine.
At this point, we must all support Ukraine like never before because this is where the future of Europe will be decided.
The funds will be used to alleviate the urgent needs of Ukrainian creatives, whose lives are now in direct danger:
- urgent evacuation and resettlement in the cities of Western Ukraine,
- urgent evacuation and resettlement in safe countries.
Culture is one of the chief bastions of Ukrainian freedom and we must ensure that members of the Ukrainian cultural community can continue to speak out loudly and without hindrance.
We pledge to share all details about the use of the raised funds.
