Про ArtsLink Assembly 2023

ArtsLink Assembly 2023 is themed “The Future Is Not What It Used to Be.” Over two days, the event will feature 35 speakers sharing their thoughts on the Ukrainian cultural industry and its prospects.  

Day one features a succession of MANYfestos, thought pieces, presentations and discussions by leading artists rooted in their unique communities around the world and figures in cultural policy and practice, philanthropy and social justice.  

Day two focuses on the cultural reconstruction of Ukraine and features perspectives from key cultural voices. Emerging from the ideas and issues raised by Ukrainian artists and cultural leaders at last year’s ArtsLink Assembly in Warsaw, the Ukrainian Institute and independent Kyiv-based think tank CEDOS will present a strategy report that distills many critical issues facing Ukraine’s cultural future caused by Russia’s war of aggression.
