About

Project ‘Diffusion’ came to life in 2016. It aims at bringing together artists from different spheres (film and photography, multimedia, street arts, fine arts and crafts, contemporary art performance, dance, theatre, design, drawing, etc.) to create artworks that address important social and environmental issues and preferably involve local community in development of artwork. The Residency is open for artists both from Ukraine and abroad. The culminating moments of the Residency are final exhibitions on 14 of September in Mariupol Art Center and on the 28th of September in the Kramatorsk Art Museum where the artworks created during the Residency will be shown.

Kramatorsk and Mariupol are small industrial, but very green towns that due to geo-political turbulence became a kind of centers of eastern Ukraine: The difference is in Mariupol being costal port city and Kramatorsk is steppe city. By choosing Kramatorsk and Mariupol as the base for the residency we hope to offers a unique experience when it comes to discovering the cultural transitions which are so characteristic to all ‘Post-Soviet’ era of the Eastern European countries. Feedback and experience of the first two editions of “Diffusion” have shown that the acclimatization process which accompanies the residency in a new city full of contrasts invariably generates creative impulses that sooner or later manifest themselves in some form of artistic expression. Participants present their depiction of their sensations to local people by giving them a chance to view their region through the eyes of a stranger.
