European museums support Ukrainian colleagues and citizens

Share

Since the onset of the war in Ukraine, Museums across Europe have implemented different support actions to help their Ukrainian museum colleagues and citizens.

The initiatives are relating to: storage and housing, job offers, donations, education and exhibitions as well as statements issued by European museum organisations.

The Network of European Museum Organizations (NEMO) is monitoring and collecting these support initiatives and created a dedicated web page on the NEMO platform, in order to give them greater visibility and to ensure that knowledge of these activities reaches people affected, especially Ukrainian museums and museum professionals.

The page is progressively updated with new solidarity initiatives.

NEMO’s invitation is both to contribute an offer to the web page and to share its webpage so that these initiatives can reach as many interested people and institutions as possible.

Here is the link to the NEMO web page which collects the support actions organized by museums for Ukraine.

To contribute an offer to the NEMO’s webpage, send your initiative (including location and description in English) to weber@ne-mo.org
