One last place to The Moon Gallery is available for a Ukrainian artist displaced in Netherlands. Precious professional experience in the creative industry is required. The Moon Gallery Foundation invites a Ukrainian cultural worker, artist or curator with an interdisciplinary background to express his/her talent for the Artists-at-Risk: Essence of Home residency program.
