TAPA Stands With Ukraine
As the armed struggle in Ukraine escalates, the humanitarian consequences in-country and at its borders are also becoming acute.
TAPA condemns this needless militaristic action provoked by Russia. We stand in solidarity with the courageous resistance by the Ukrainian people in Ukraine and around the world.
As an arts-focused organization, we are additionally struck by the empathetic leadership and participation of Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy: a former actor and comedian demonstrating a balanced capacity to pursue humanitarian and wartime concerns in this highly regretful conflict.

We encourage TAPA members to consider making a donation to the Come Back Alive Foundation, one of the largest Ukrainian NGO’s that has the ability to quickly disperse aid in Ukraine. The funds are in UAH (Ukrainian Hryvna), which exchanges at about 20-25 Hryvna for $1 CAD.
