Moving in, Moving on: TEH Startup Support Programme Publication #6 Featuring: ReZavod, Lviv, Ukraine

TEH Startup Support Programme is a training programme that we have designed to provide support to selected emerging non-governmental cultural centres across Europe. Through this programme, we aim to share our knowledge and experience with new initiatives that emerge in regions and countries where neither civil society nor critical artistic production is encouraged. We believe that these initiatives have the potential to become exciting cultural and artistic hubs responsible for nurturing civic agency in their communities.

The beneficiary countries in 2018-2019 were Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine. Three centres from the region participated in the programme. Here you can find our sixth Startup Support Programme publication featuring ReZavod from Lviv, Ukraine.

Three years ago, three companies (a design bureau, an engineering studio and a recycling studio) rented premises at the old factory in Lviv (REMA) and began to develop around the space of interaction for representatives of the creative industries called ‘ReZavod’. At the moment, ReZavod is a space in which there are almost 80 different businesses and initiatives. Different pieces of training, parties, small events and large festivals take place here on a regular basis. However, the owners of the building are not interested in the further development of the community. Therefore, the centre’s team found another old factory and an investor who was interested in opening the space ReZavod 2.0.

Here is the full report on ReZavod. It provides deeper insights into the development of the organisation, its current state and future ambitions.

As a part of the TEH Startup Support Programme, Chris Keulemans held a strategic workshop on organisational development with the ReZavod’s team. You can find the workshop report here.

If you are interested to learn more about the benefits of the programme and the impressions of the participants, check out feedback from ReZavod themselves.

The Startup Support Programme is part of the project Factories of Imagination, which is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
