Values

Jam Factory Art Center is a contemporary art institution. To us, this means being active in a certain space and certain time, taking a critical stance towards global and local social processes, as well as representing and supporting artists and art professionals who show active social and political interest in their particular circumstances.

Presentation

Jam Factory Art Center is a space for presenting new art trends and discovering new names, a place for implementing our own and partnered cultural and art projects, holding brought in exhibitions, art festivals and performances, a platform for international cultural and artistic collaboration.

Research

At the same time, we plan to gradually increase our research potential by forming a pool of curators and theorists through educational programs in order to subsequently carry out our own research projects, produce knowledge, and participate in composing contemporary art history.

Education

Developing professional and non-professional education in the field of art and culture is Jam Factory Art Center’s top-priority area. All our projects are accompanied by a number of educational activities. We strive to be the platform for holding discussions on the most relevant artistic and philosophical ideas and phenomena, raising issues of societal importance, initiating interaction and exchange between artists, cultural professionals, and various visitors – adults, youth and children.

Focus

Jam Factory Art Center is a part of the international cultural scene due to its extensive network of partnerships, but first and foremost, our team focuses on presenting, developing, and exploring Ukrainian and East European art.
