Ukraine aid: 100,000 euros for music lessons and artists

In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, two cultural aid programs for refugees from the Ukraine have been set up with a total of 100,000 euros. With 50,000 euros, refugee children up to the age of 18 should be able to take music lessons at music schools, as the Ministry of Culture announced on Thursday in Schwerin . The program of the National Association of Music Schools therefore provides for the money to be used to pay for lessons, instrument rental and additional hours. According to the information, the state is providing 50,000 euros for a scholarship or a residency in the state’s artist houses for refugee artists.

A contact exchange was set up on the website www.kultur-mv.de/ukrainehilfe for further aid initiatives. “We would like to collect and make accessible offers of help and hands-on activities from culture in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania,” said Minister of Culture Bettina Martin (SPD). The first entries are already there: the Theater Vorpommern is announcing a “benefit concert for peace” at Easter and a helper is looking for a traditional plucked instrument called a bandura for a Ukrainian musician who has fled to MV.
