Ukraine/ 4.2 Specific policy issues and debates  

4.2.1 Conceptual issues of policies for the arts

The public art policy is based on the provisions of the Law on Culture which ensures support for all kinds of artistic creativity as well as Ukrainian art production, including new technologies. The Ministry of Culture organises annually competitions for Presidential grants to young artists based on the Presidential Edict #127 of 1999. The Presidential grant is the most prestigious form of state support for young artists. The new Expert Commission was established in April 2014, based on the Ministry's Order #216. The scope of funding for 2015 grants has not decreased essentially compared to 2014 and even increased compared to 2013 – UAH 7.6 million in 2013, 8.97 – in 2014, and 8.58 – in 2015 (planned).
