7 Events

The “Navigation” program supported artists who were forced to move to Lviv due to the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. We wanted to create conditions in which artists feel more confident in the new environment of the city, have a network of professional contacts, 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, including ones in cooperation with local artists.

Artists participated in different events, which contributed to their integration into the cultural and artistic field of Lviv and professional development:

  • Networking sessions with local artists, gallerists, and curators;
  • Lectures on the art history of Lviv;
  • Excursions with researchers of the city and the history of architecture and art;
  • Acquaintance with cultural institutions of the city;
  • Workshops and master classes according to the professional level of the participants.

In addition, all course participants got access to the following types of support:

  1. Scholarship;
  2. A platform for the presentation of art projects and their promotion (film screenings, artist talks, performances, pop-up exhibitions);

In addition, according to the internal competition, some participants received the following types of support:
