What can we do for Ukraine?

Get involved SWAN - Swedish Artist Residency Network. Help and spread the word to Ukrainian, Russian and Belarusian musicians who have moved to Sweden!

SWAN is a network that establishes residences for artists at the time of writing. They work together Artists at Risk by trying as quickly as to help artists who are fleeing and have fled the war, by creating secure residence opportunities in Sweden.

SWAN thus collaborates with Artists at Risk, i.a. with making the application process as fast and smooth as possible. The emergency residences that are established in SWAN's network are in line with the time and production needs of the artists applying for residency, and there are currently 20 residences available. Artists at Risk has "emergency residences" in several European countries, and the applicant can indicate which country they would like to come to for their residency.

Artists at Risk (AR) is in turn a non-profit organization that works for human rights in the arts. Since 2013, AR has collaborated with non-profit art actors and state financiers to help artists who are in political repression and war - in as many as 26 areas around 19 different countries.


Music Export Ukraine also tells how we can help! Be sure to follow theirs Facebook page for more info. Music Export Ukraine (MEU) is an initiative that helps local Ukrainian artists build their international presence, and works to put the Ukrainian music market on the global map.
