Open Place是烏克蘭藝術家的倡議活動,致力於建立藝術家與烏克蘭社會間不同層面的深度連結。該平台鼓勵烏克蘭地區及其他國家的藝術家、策展人交換意見、想法,以及兩者之間的相互影響,並鼓勵人們在藝術、政治和社會文化轉型的進程中,建立培養不同觀點的合作關係。Open Place相信文化扮演非常關鍵的角色,建立公民社會、解決衝突、克服社會中的歧視和狹隘視野。Open Place不斷研究與尋找藝術機構的形式,並認為藝術機構應該在文化活動中扮演積極的角色,與大環境攜手共創共同價值、參與藝術現象及文化脈絡的發展。自1999年成立以來,Open Place發展並實踐了許多跨領域的計畫,期許能將藝術的影響範疇推向更寬廣的境界,讓更多人能參與其中。人們集體合作,透過交流和駐村計畫,積極在烏克蘭和國外建立草根倡議網路。
