IWM, Vienna awards over 120 Documenting Ukraine Grants

Since the launch of the program Documenting Ukraine in April 2022, the IWM has awarded over 120 grants to projects that contribute to creating a wide-ranging record of the Russo-Ukrainian War, focusing particularly on Ukrainian society’s experience of the war.

Among the grantees are archivists, scholars, filmmakers, journalists, artists, writers, and public intellectuals currently located across the country or, in some cases, abroad.

You can find more information about some of our grantees on the program’s page; the list is constantly being updated.

The project Documenting Ukraine seeks to facilitate this work by supporting journalists, scholars, artists, public intellectuals, and archivists based in Ukraine as they work on documentation projects that establish and preserve a factual record, through reporting, gathering published source material, or collecting oral testimony; or bring meaning to events through artistic interpretation and intellectual reflection.

Documenting Ukraine also foresees the construction of a complex archive of materials created and collected by project participants and the presentation of these materials to the public, in cooperation with partner institutions, including the Center for Urban History (Lviv) and the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University.

The next round of grant applications will open at the beginning of September, with a deadline of 30 September 2022.
