Together with other cultural institutions in Leipzig and the surrounding area, we started the initiative “LISTOK – Leipzig Initiative for Solidarity and Open Culture”. It is a network of creative people in Leipzig (institutions, artists, filmmakers, musicians, composers, writers, curators, art scholars, designers) that aims to open up spaces and immediate help for international colleagues in exile who are trying to escape war and/or repression.

If you and your family need accommodation, money, local help, or would like to contact us directly, write to us:
