About us


Lanka.pro Collective works on creative economy development and explores ecosystemic solutions inspired by culture.

Our story took start with the beginning of russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. We agreed with each other that despite everything that was happening, we would gather at least once a week and talk about the future of Ukraine. Our dreams became our support since the first days of the coldest spring of our lives, and leadership from the emerging future was the key to building a team.

Lanka is an allusion to the name of the literary formation Lanka, which in the 1920s called for “filling the existing gap that emerged in Ukrainian literature after the great cataclysms and together becoming a link in the broken chain.”

We were united by our love for the traditions of the Ukrainian land, a holistic view on the creative economy, and independent practice as ambassadors of change.
