An interdisciplinary cultural exchange project, space for artistic interaction between Ukrainian and German artists, organized in collaboration of three teams of Kosmos tabir (Kyiv), Reverberation Fest (Dresden), and Vertuha Arts Festival (Kyiv).

RUBACAVA project encourages collaborations between artists from both countries, a combination of different art forms - music, visuals, painting, performance, dance, happening, improvisation. This joint experience of artistic interaction creates the basis for long-term Ukrainian-German cultural cooperation and will open the cultural and artistic life of Kyiv and Ukraine to a European audience.

Our project promotes reflection on the past and presents through art, and as a result - forms new different types of connections and relations between Ukrainian and German artists: towards themselves, their artistic practice, and their surroundings - physical and virtual.

Vertuha Arts Festival

Cultural phenomena for psychedelic music & arts in Kyiv offer an alternative where the underdog gets the main stage and paves the way for artists and people to interact and exchange ideas.

The main goal is to infuse the Kyiv scene with knowledge gained from Europe; to transform the idea of the “Ukrainian festival” and show what is possible with some vision and love for the arts.
