Art Association NURT

Art association NURT is an independent, non-profit NGO created by Ukrainian artists in 2011.

Since 2011 Art Association NURT organized more than thirty events including festivals, exhibitions, lectures, concerts, workshops, performances, and creative meetings with acclaimed European artists. Since 2012 we regularly organized events in the field of experimental electroacoustic music and sound art. Among them, the international festival of audiovisual art TETRAMATYKA (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021), the festival of electroacoustic music VOX ELECTRONICA (2012–2020), and the ensemble of contemporary music ConstantY (2011–2015).

Since February 21, 2022, Art Association NURT also started various volunteer initiatives with the main goal to help Ukrainian artists who joined Ukrainian Army. In July–October 2022 we realized the “Reactivation” project focused on creating possibilities for the artistic and educational development of displaced students of art institutions and young artists.

Festival of electroacoustic music VOX ELECTRONICA is an annual event that presents a cross-section of modern trends in electroacoustic music. The aim of the festival is to create a unique environment for the exchange of experience between Ukrainian and international composers, performers, and artists working in electroacoustic music or audiovisual arts. Due to the pandemic in 2020, the main focus of the festival was moved to open-air educational activities (workshops on field recording, etc.) and online events (online lectures and concerts). The festival was implemented with the support of the Lviv City Council.
