Proposal

Idea pitch

We would like to consolidate people of various nationalities, speaking different languages, professing different faiths around European values, democracy, and freedom. We will show another life without war and terrorism in our artworks, paintings and photos, and engaging Ukrainian and German artists, in total 15 individuals for our symposiums, which will take place in Ruhr(Germany) and Nikolaev region(Ukraine). As a bright final of this art session we will organise exhibitions, workshops.

Where will your idea take place?

Germany

Why does Europe need your idea?

Our countries and nations have the same problems such as various religious, people speaking different languages, refugees, terroristic threats, other social issues. Mature generation from Ukraine avoids any attempts to join with the Europe Union. Europeans citizens treat with caution to new neighbour Ukraine.
But in another case, we both Ukraine and Germany have many similarities. Our idea is consolidation through cultural values and solving common problems.

What is your impact?

Symposium/exhibition in Germany it’s only first step for consolidation and rapprochement our countries and cultures. We will invite German artists for Ukrainian symposium(Nikolaev and Odessa regions), in summer-autumn 2016. The main idea is discovering other nations, cultural exchange. We would like to make this event annual, and promote both cultures, find new talented artist and creative people.

How do you get there?

- Conducting symposiums(15 artists from Ukraine) in Central part of Germany (Ruhr, Cologne) in end of June – July 2016, and south of Ukraine (Nikolaev, Odessa) in August – September(15 artists from Germany, and other European countries).
