LAGE EGAL supports the Ukrainian people, the Russian peace protesters, the Ukrainian diaspora in Germany, in Europe and internationally. We pay special attention to the struggling workers in the arts and culture sector.
Concretely we have decided in collaboration with artists and friends of the gallery to dedicate a FREE SPACE (one or two walls visible from outside) at LAGE EGAL open to anyone who wishes to exhibit a work of art in reaction to the current situation, or who wishes to donate a work. The particularity is to give a real free exhibition space in the gallery to present the works of the artists who wish to engage for peace in Ukraine and to help the populations endangered by the aggression of the forces directed by Putin.
In case of donation 100% of the money will go directly to an initiative in support of Ukraine. #artforukraine #makepeacenotwar
All funds raised will go to the Berlin-based non-profit association MitOst e.V.
MitOst e.V. coordinates the collaborative efforts of civil society organisations that are directly supporting on-the-ground efforts to secure people, provide protection, facilitate evacuations, and connect to temporary accommodation. Our role involves bridging communications, directing financial support, needs assessments and connecting networks and offers of support.
They cooperate with partners in Ukraine, Poland, Germany, Moldova, Lithuania, Hungary, Bulgaria and Slovakia, who are actively working to welcome refugees from Ukraine by supplying the necessary assistance.
