Creature Academy is a Paris-based NGO that offers training and support for artists and creatives, to help them achieve increased sustainability and independence. I am writing regarding a programme we are implementing, aimed at refugee artists based in France, Germany and Spain. It is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme, and will begin in the fall.

We are currently selecting participants in the program, and wish to give priority to Ukrainian artists or cultural entrepreneurs, so we believe your network is probably very relevant for this. Our current priority is to identify 2 Ukrainian artists based in France.

The programme is fully funded and made available for free for selected participants. It consists of 3 weeks of workshops, visits of institutions, meetings with local artists, which will take place on the following dates: in Berlin from October 24th-28th 2022, in Madrid from November 14th-18th 2022, in Paris and Burgundy from December 5th-9th 2022. After that, participants will have access to our residency facility in Burgundy, France, from April 1st to June 30th 2023 to work on the theme "Memories of conflicts". Travel and accommodation costs are also covered by the programme.

For further details about the context of this programme, etc. email us at or call +33 (0)6 64 94 44 53.
