We are mostly working artists with contacts in various branches of the arts in the UK. We set up Artists In Exile to try to help artists from Ukraine navigate the bewildering feeling of displacement. Through contacts with artist communities and institutions we hope to give Ukrainian artists help in finding a safe and productive place to live and work in the UK.

We are a core group of people helped by hosts, community hosts and arts administrators in various places in the UK including Cardiff, Cambridge, London, Leeds, Hebden Bridge and elsewhere. We run Artists In Exile on a purely volunteer basis. 

We are: writer Sarah Woods, film-maker Alex Metcalf, artist and facilitator Lil Woods, theatre-maker Adrian Jackson, researcher Jude Hannam, writer Oisin Teevan and composer Boff Whalley.
