IZOLYATSIA is a non-profit non-governmental platform for contemporary culture founded in 2010 on the territory of a former insulation materials factory in Donetsk, Ukraine. On June 9, 2014, the territory was seized by the militia of the self-proclaimed “Donetsk People’s Republic”.
IZOLYATSIA has relocated to a shipyard in Kyiv and continues to present cultural projects and support socially active artists and creative producers in Kyiv, throughout Ukraine, and worldwide, as well as serving as a resource for international curators, scholars, artists and ambassadors.
IZOLYATSIA is the name inherited from the Donetsk factory, which previously produced insulation materials. The foundation’s mission is to inspire positive change in Ukraine by using culture as a tool.
IZOLYATSIA is a platform for cultural initiatives. It is a multidisciplinary cultural project open to all genres of creative expression. It is a point of intersection for all those passionate about cultural and social change.
IZOLYATSIA has three intertwined directions of activity: art, education and projects geared at activating Ukraine’s creative sector.
