The program’s intensity from March 10 to April 21 is around three times a week, mainly in the evening. From April 22 to May 21 – once or twice a week.
Our program aims to support artists who were forced to move to Lviv due to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. Preference will be given to artists from the regions most affected during the war: in particular, Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Kherson, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Zaporizhzhya, Kyiv, and other areas. We want to create conditions in which artists will feel more confident in the new environment of the city, will receive a network of professional contacts, will be better oriented in the professional cultural and artistic field of Lviv, will be able to present their projects to the already existing Jam Factory audience and the professional community of Lviv, continue or renew their artistic activity, start new projects in cooperation with local artists.

Program period: March 10 – May 21.
You can apply here until February 25, 2023, inclusive:
