Now more than ever, we feel the importance of firmly establishing a place for Ukrainian culture. Not only to preserve and share the rich history, but also to develop contemporary interpretations and interact with the broader European community.

VATAHA Foundation was started in 2022 by Oksana, Yulia and Uliana — three active Ukrainian women living in The Netherlands, with broad experience and connections in the Dutch cultural scene.

Our goal

  • Support of projects in the field of culture and art.
  • Providing a platform for creativity, inspiration and professional exchange.
  • Exchange of cultures and the function of a bridge between Ukrainian and Dutch artists with the possibility of learning from each other.
  • Creation of a communication environment between creative Ukrainians and Dutch people.
  • Organization of public events
