Vse Bude Ukraina: Resistance, Resilience, and Ukrainian Culture
Thursday, 23 Nov 2023, 07:30pm – 09:00pm
The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale Street Melbourne Victoria 3000
The war in Ukraine has slipped out of focus for many Australians. The Russian invasion has resulted in countless deaths, environmental destruction and the increased threat of cultural and military imperialism.
At this event, curated and hosted by award-winning writer Maria Tumarkin, hear from remarkable Ukrainian voices about the true cost of the war, the vibrancy of Ukrainian culture, and the powerful place that young people have assumed in fighting for their country’s sovereignty.
Featuring co-curator of the Unissued Diplomas exhibition Yana Mokhonchuk; sociologist and communications expert Olga Boichak; journalist Galyna Piskorska, current Principal Fellow at Melbourne University through their Scholars at Risk scheme; and a virtual contribution from celebrated artist Stanislava Pinchuk.
Join these artists, writers and experts, in-person or via livestream, as they celebrate the strength of Ukrainian resistance and share unique and urgent insights into the country and the impacts of the invasion. Vse Bude Ukraina – all will be Ukraine.
‘For artists removed geographically or in time from wars and destruction, the question of what art can do in the face of horror… is perhaps answerable only one book, one song, one show at a time.’ Maria Tumarkin
Presented in partnership with the Melbourne UNESCO City of Literature Office
