Season Partners

UK/Ukraine Season Partners

The UK/Ukraine Season of Culture was created by the British Council and the Ukrainian Institute, and was made possible thanks to the generous participation and support of many partners and collaborators in both countries. Lots of institutions in the arts and creative industries from Ukraine have contributed to making the Ukrainian culture more visible internationally and have partnered with UK organisations to represent music, film, literature, visual and performing arts. Participants on both sides have been working tirelessly to bring together cultural actors, despite the war, to enhance creative collaborations and respond to current challenges. We sincerely thank them for their invaluable contributions.
