Newsletter – Tanja Liedtke Foundation
Now we are back in Europe and before informing about our continuous work we want to take time to reflect on the Russia-Ukraine conflict. This unfortunate event has generated human suffering on a scale that Europe had been previously spared for a long time.
We want to express our deepest sympathies with everybody who has been drawn into this conflict and suffers because of it. Our thoughts are with the many civilians and soldiers who have lost their lives and their family and friends, with the victims who have been hurt, the people who had their homes and livelihoods destroyed, and with the refugees who had to flee the regions in the Ukraine.

Vienna - danceWeb Scholarship
We are glad to announce the support for Mariia Bakalo, a young lady coming from Ukraine. She will go to Vienna taking up the scholarship at danceWeb and visit the so much inspiring ImPuls Tanz Festival.
Mariia has worked in the „Pozytsia Program“ in Kyiv, further in a collaboration with young poets and composer Alisa Nesterova. She also was teaching in privat Dance Schools in Ukraine, Moldova and Belarus and worked as a teacher of movement research lab at the local university of Lviv in 2015-2017.
Receiving the scholarship Mariia wrote:
“I am beyond measure grateful for the opportunity to take part in the danceWeb program and ImPulsTanz Festival. There is no doubts that all the insights, knowledge and those new approaches in art that I will gain while the Program, will contribute significantly in the future establishment of art in my country, as my only desire is to rebuild and shine with the new colors for Ukrainian choreography in future.
There are some photos in attachments with me, Mariia Bakalo, by the authorship of Lisa Vlasenko. Thank you again and my best regards”
We are sure she will use this opportunity well.

With the foundations support, he has been offered financial support, company-wide resources and assistance across the organisation as well as 12 weeks free development time in the Tanja Liedtke Studio.
