Statement on Ukraine
The CISAC global community laments the catastrophe now unfolding in Ukraine and condemns the brutal assault by Russia on freedom and human rights. We stand alongside our colleagues and partners in Ukraine who are suffering from the war instigated by the Russian Government. Their work is to support creativity, art and culture - precious qualities that enrich our lives and communities, but which are now under attack and facing terrible humanitarian consequences.
Our thoughts are with friends and creators who have been forced to flee their homes, hide in shelters and take to the streets to fight to protect their country and freedoms.
As an international organisation with members across the world, we believe that peace must prevail. We encourage in the strongest terms the path of dialogue and co-operation and insist on an end to aggression and violence.
