On February 24, the Canadian Museum for Human Rights launched a new installation called Ukrainian Artists United. The evening began with a rally in front of the building, drawing a crowd of hundreds adorned in the bright yellow and blue of the Ukrainian flag. The event continued with a performance from Hoosli Ukrainian Male Chorus and remarks from Darcy Ataman and Jason Willheim, the creators of the project.
Guests were then able to watch the multi-media performance which shared an intimate look at artists living through the conflict in Ukraine as they connect, resist and heal. Their stories, told through images, voiceovers and music, provide insight into the human cost of the ongoing conflict.
Ukrainian Artist United is available for viewing in the Inspiring Change gallery on Level 7 until September 30. Thank you for generously supporting work like this.
