Grantee profile


Founded in 1998, Artemisszio promotes the social inclusion of migrant communities and other disadvantaged groups in Budapest. The organisation’s approach to cross-cultural solidarity and mutual understanding is born out of its founders’ shared background in social anthropology, a discipline they credit with shaping their flagship program: the Mira Intercultural Community Centre, a warm and welcoming meeting place for migrants and locals. With an emergency £70,000 grant from the Trust, Artemisszio will adapt Mira’s range of programmes – mentorships; creative workshops; language and job-skills training; professional development courses; and activities for children and families – to better respond to the Ukrainian crisis. The grant will help Artemisszio hire an additional, Ukrainian-speaking employee, support the running of its refugee drop-in community center, and answer Ukrainian refugees’ evolving needs as they seek stable accommodation in Budapest, as well as social and employment opportunities.
