in Ukraine



Community and territory

« Spilnikosht» on Big Idea platform is the first and biggest online crowdfunding mechanism in Ukraine. It helps people find financial support for their projects among colleagues and adherents. Spilnokosht emerged out of need to support creative, media and educational initiatives, and develops in order to fund innovations in such fields as IT, renewable energy and social entrepreneurship.

Investor of Society is a program of cooperation between civic and commercial sectors. It invites businesses to support projects related to their development strategy. According to research, the majority of social projects are supported by Ukrainian business unsystematically. In the long run, it is disadvantageous both to business and sustainable development. The program of venture philanthropy Investor of Society provides a possibility to support projects that create innovations in the company’s sphere of interest.

Big Idea is a platform of active citizens, social projects and educational ideas. Big Idea provides a set of tools for pragmatic idealists who want to develop and implement their projects. The platform offers three services: Spilnokosht – online crowdfunding mechanism; Opportunities – up-to-date announcements about grants, internships, educational programs and travels; Practices – a media journal about social innovations, social entrepreneurship, new business models, ecological awareness, and the theory of change.

Social changes require an environment based on constant learning, mutual responsibility and exchange of ideas. We develop programs for civic and professional communities, projects of public space activation, local and international artistic initiatives. We implement models of cooperation for different stakeholders: SundayBorshch – a project of mini-grants from communities; Generation Celebration – a program of urban transformations supported by local authorities and business; Street Voice – urban festival of interaction between creative class and local communities.

Арт-проект людей і горобців

Новела-історія про те, як один українчик на ім’я Саша Шагі не став піаністом і написав легку літературну психоделію «Fantaisie Impromptu», де під прикриттям напіввигаданого персонажа Короля Клавіш у різних містах світу звинувачував горобців у своїх нереалізованих мріях. Потім попросив артистів зі всього світу зробити те саме художньо – намалювати горобців зі своїми програними мріями.

56 артистів з 23 країн малювали своїх локальних птахів і відкривали свої душі усьому світові. Серед них були такі цікаві українці, як Росава, Юра Хусточка, Василіса Фролова, Любко Дереш, Ірена Карпа, Антон Фрідлянд, Ірина Мерлені. Проект завершився виставкою та виданням літературного арт-буку «Fantaisie Impromptu».
