In times of peace, Ukraine was an emerging destination on the global cultural stage. A melting pot of ancient architecture, contemporary art galleries and philharmonic concerts in glorious green spaces. A place for artists to nurture their talents and for the younger generation to grow up immersed in the unique culture of Ukraine.
This dazzling kaleidoscope was shockingly shattered with the Russian invasion on the 24th February. The appalling full-scale war that followed has brought the country to its knees, completely devastating the cultural sector while Ukrainians fight for their lives. The world has rallied to provide vital humanitarian aid and support displaced peoples, but what happens to Ukraine when the war is over?
Many museums, zoos, galleries, concert spaces and other cultural establishments have been annihilated by bombings. Those who have survived destruction are at best, closed indefinitely. Taking an optimistic view to the future, to when peace will finally be restored, we must act now to save the institutions that make up the rich cultural tapestry of this beautiful country.
