The Abakanowicz Arts and Culture Charitable Foundation (AACCF), in collaboration with ELIA, the European League of Institutes of the Arts, on 15th November 2022 announces its largest gift to date to support art students and universities in Ukraine. The scheme, known as the UAx Platform, will support war-affected art students who have remained in Ukraine hoping to continue their degree studies and build their artistic practice, and Ukrainian Higher Arts Education institutions which are struggling to deliver teaching during a time of crisis.
