Vitalʹnya Vienna (вітальня відень), meaning “living room”, is a recently founded soft, cozy platform for presenting artists and cultural workers from Ukraine. The initiative is a direct response to wishes expressed at the Emergency Assembly of cultural workers in Vienna in April.
The first event was held on 06.07.2022 at Fluc, Vienna (upstairs).
Vitalʹnya Vienna aims to create an informal, homey atmosphere with discussion, hanging out, and snacks. The idea is to open up an opportunity for artists and cultural workers from Ukraine to present their work, connect with local networks and get low threshold information on funding structures and institutions in the Vienna art and culture scene. We direct our invitation to the Viennese art and cultural scene to come and learn about the new art peers in town and their practice.
The initiative was started by a group of local artists, cultural workers, and curators with the aim to share their resources and platform to welcome artists and cultural workers arriving in Vienna from Ukraine. The event will present projects submitted through an open call. The stage is open for music, poetry, performance, dance, and presenting research projects. Each event will host up to 5 presenters. The team curating will be limited to creating interesting line-ups. All projects will have a chance to be presented.
We are a collective opposing abuse and discrimination. We want to ensure that our event is a safer space where people’s experiences and identities are respected. Fluc and Vital´nya Vienna do not tolerate sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, or any kind of discriminatory behavior.
