On February 24 Russia invaded Ukraine. Since then, the Russian military hasn't stopped destroying Ukrainian cities and shattering the lives of millions of people, whose world will never be the same again. During the last two years, we, the ∄ team, have been working on building up a safer space, which has become a place of refuge for thousands of people from all around the world, a place of culture, music and art with the values of love, respect and mutual support at its very core.
In this moment of unprecedented crisis we are doing everything in our power to help to the members of our community (16.000+), artists and more than 150 employees of ∄, whose livelihood is in jeopardy: support them financially, help them find a safe place in Ukraine or abroad, help them cross the border, enable them to receive humanitarian, legal and psychological aid.
We sincerely believe that there will soon be a time when we will be able to resume our work. In the meantime, we ask for your help to support our community and ensure that this future is possible.
