Event Description







The "Ukraїnian Week" project, organized by visiting students from Ukraine, will take place at the University of Toronto's St. George campus from November 28th to December 4th. It will include five elements: a pop-up art exhibition, a movie night, a party in the modern Ukrainian style, a photo exhibition timed to the 10 months of the Russian invasion, and other educational components.


Ukraine has become the epitome of sadness and sympathy, but rough times shape strong individuals and bring new meanings to what really matters. The project's mission is to introduce the real Ukraine that continues to reshape and rediscover itself in the context of the Russian invasion. It intends to show the repercussions of war through authentic experiences. And it is also aimed at raising money for Ukrainian students who, instead of continuing education, are forced to defend their homeland on the front lines.


Ukraine is not defined by war but by its people, who are full of hope and fortitude despite all of the hardships. The events will give visitors a better understanding of how ordinary Ukrainians overcome weighty challenges and will introduce Torontonians to traditional and contemporary Ukrainian culture. It will be of interest not only to individuals who enjoy art but also to those interested in politics and diverse cultures, as well as to those who simply cannot stay indifferent to Ukraine’s fight for freedom and democracy.
