«Grace Note» – a collaboration programme with international music media

The Ukrainian Institute has launched a collaboration programme with international music media called “Grace Note, aimed at supporting and promoting Ukrainian music on the international level.

The programme's priority is to draw attention to the Ukrainian music scene, create a platform for mutual cultural exchange, and support cultural diplomacy between Ukraine and global music media, initiating partnerships between Ukrainian and international media.

Collaboration formats within the programme include the publication of articles in print and online media, the dissemination of playlists and music selections to international audiences, and the inclusion of Ukrainian content in the schedules of foreign radio and television broadcasts.

Materials for distribution will be created in partnership with Ukrainian music media, musicologists, and foreign journalists. Additionally, the Insight.UA platform, an English-language guide to Ukrainian culture  launched by Ukrainian Institute, will be utilized as a source of information for international media. The Ukrainian Institute has already successfully implemented joint projects with Ukrainian music media such as Meloport and Neformat. Among our international media partners are: JAZZ FORUM (Poland), CITIZEN JAZZ (France), PAPAGENO (Hungary), Glissando (Poland), Idioteq (Poland), and Seismograf (Denmark).

If you represent Ukrainian or international music media and wish to actively contribute to the promotion of Ukrainian musical content on your platforms, we welcome your proposals at music (AT) ui.org.ua.
