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.
What We Do in the Face of War
Because of the terrible full-scale Russian invasion in Ukraine, the plan to open the Art Center in August has been shattered. But our will to pursue our goal is and will remain alive.
Now we work in an emergency mode to meet the needs of our country at war. Our halls and basements have become distribution centers for humanitarian aid and are giving shelter to refugees and civilians from the neighborhood. Individually, the members of our team are volunteering and providing security for our own families and friends.
As an art institution, our special concern remains the cultural sector which we consider to be our country’s major soft power. In response to the ongoing full-scale war against our country, we are launching the “Artists in War” program to support the communities of independent art and culture in Ukraine.Donate Learn More
