British Council Ukraine and the Goethe-Institut, in partnership with CANactions, launch a programme to identify, support and implement innovative urban development projects that seek to reinvigorate post-industrial, mid-sized cities across the Ukraine through the cultural and creative industries. The programme recognises the importance of supporting communities which are working together to address common urban issues, and seeks to draw on British and German expertise in this area.

We want to support most innovative architectural/urbanist projects aiming to address urban issues in post-industrial, mid-sized Ukrainian cities (pop. 50,000 - 600,000). Open call for applications starts on November 15, 2016 and will run till January 16, 2017. Our international panel of experts will select two winning proposals that will receive up to € 15,000 each to implement their project, as well as the chance to receive mentorship support from a German and/or British urban development agency. Selected teams will also get the chance to travel to Germany and/or the UK to take part in a tailored study-tour of urban regeneration.
