Creative Rural Hub is founded by a group of friends - makers, designers, architects, artists. It is located in the small village Verhnij Verbizh in Ivano Frankivsk district, Ukraine.

Western Ukraine is famous for its craftsmanship, rich cultural inheritance and beautiful nature of Carpathian Mountains.

Living in this environment is inspiring and enriching, and it gives the chance to learn local crafts and discover Ukraine.

This project will help to link international and local creatives, providing the space for learning, working together and exchanging experiences and knowledge.

Ah!! and the meaning of the sign we have used for Creative Rural Hub is “settlement next to mountains” and it has been taken originally from pysanka (Ukrainian Easter egg)

The local community is slowly growing. We mostly have local/international people on site over summers. Also since we are located in mountains we can’t keep the space open all year long. However, it’s always possible to email us. Our team will always be happy to get in touch with you :

  • Michael Obrizkiv • CRH founder • Designer, maker, artist

  • Tetiana Stelmashchuk • Local social & youth worker

  • Iryna Kolotylo • Art manager

If your road drives you to our lovely western Ukraine mountains, just let us know!
