Topics are no less diverse: classic and modern literature, cinema, various genres of art and music, street-art and even city planning. In Austria, Ukrainian organisers will present an rich programme of music events (varying from classical and baroque music to contemporary classics and jazz), theatre and contemporary opera performances, visual arts and film projects, as well as platforms for intellectual discussions.

“We wanted to make this year special. It is not a one-way project: our program is based on joint participation of artists, experts and professionals from both countries, as well as collaboration between individuals and institutions, which will continue in the coming years” added Mr. Sheiko, director general of the Ukrainian Institute.
