Artery is an independent initiative, a partnership between ARTmania Festival (Romania), Music Export Ukraine (Ukraine) & Pohoda Festival (Slovakia) as a reaction to the situation in Ukraine and Europe. While the war in Ukraine is destroying civilians’ lives and the music industry, and COVID left the European music industry with a lack of professionals, ARTery created a solution for all stakeholders. The platform facilitates jobs for Ukrainians and redirecting temporarily displaced Ukrainian creative professionals to teams where they are needed and welcome. In the long-term, the project aims to help other music professionals around the globe.
The main goal is to help Ukrainian music industry professionals explore new horizons in Europe, and to help to find a job until the music industry recovers in a peaceful Ukraine! ARTery cannot let the music professionals leave the profession they are passionate about because of the war. This is a way to help Ukraine flourish.
