The "Center for Performative Education" is a Non-governmental organization that works in crisis regions and with people who are in crisis. Our instruments are education, contemporary art and dialogue. The purpose is democratic development, tolerant society and critical thinking.

About us

For five years, the Center's team has been developing the only political-critical theater in Ukraine — PostPlayTheatre. And in the fall of 2020, we decided to focus on educational and participatory projects in the frontline cities of Eastern Ukraine. For this we have opened a new organization — "Center for Performative Education".

We always work where we really need to. Our projects combine theater, social work, contemporary art, research and therapy. With the help of education and culture, we build a safe space in which shared warmth is born and lost trust is restored in dialogue. A space from which everyone takes a share of heat with them.


We implement four international programs
