Statement DutchCulture on Ukraine

26 February 2022, Netherlands

DutchCulture is saddened by the war in Ukraine and its toll on all people in the region. This unprovoked act of violence goes against all the values that we stand for. We have worked with artists and cultural partners in Ukraine and Russia, and our thoughts go out to all individuals and families impacted by the war, regardless of their nationality. We are in undivided solidarity with Ukrainian artists and the Ukrainian people. We also admire the courageous protest from the Russian cultural sector, which proves once again that artists do not allow themselves to be repressed by undemocratic regimes.
