Call for Donations and Support
Berliner Festspiele and Gropius Bau stand in solidarity with the people in Ukraine affected by the war, as well as all those who have had to leave the country due to the war. Here you will find an overview of various opportunities for monetary and in-kind donations, both in Berlin and internationally.
In the following, we have compiled a selection of Berlin organizations that are dedicated to supporting refugees from Ukraine and other regions with different focuses.

#artistsinshelter is an initiative of German-speaking cultural artists*, a cooperation of the Munich Kammerspiele, the Foundation Remembrance, Responsibility and Future (EVZ) and is supported by Claudia Roth, Minister of State for Culture and Media.
MitOst e. V.
We would also like to draw attention to the Berlin-based network MitOst e. V. On their website MitOst compiles international and Ukrainian initiatives, campaigns and assistance on topics like mental support, legal information, medical and humanitarian aid etc. All donations are going directly to their partners and members in Ukraine and in neighbouring countries to secure people, provide protection, facilitate evacuations, and connect to temporary accommodation.
