Firtash Foundation presents THE DAYS OF UKRAINE IN THE UK
On September 10, the museum "Spiritual Treasures of Ukraine" hosted the presentation of large-scale cultural festival The Days of Ukraine in the UK. The project has been initiated and organised by a charity fund FIRTASH FOUNDATION with the sponsorship of Group DF, the international group of companies.
The Days of Ukraine in the UK has found support at the highest level and will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine. The project was presented by FIRTASH FOUNDATION Head Lada Firtash, the Chairman of the British Ukrainian Society Lord Risby, the Counsellor to the President of Ukraine Yuriy Bogutskyi and the Managing Director of Group DF Boris Krasnyansky. The British Ambassador to Ukraine Simon Smith also visited the festival presentation.
The curators of the festival Iryna Danylevska, Oleg Skrypka and Ihor Abramovich attended the event. On October 17-19, in London, there will be a fashion show of Ukrainian designers presented by Iryna Danylevska, the Ukrainian country fair with performances by Ukrainian singers and musical bands masterminded by Oleg Skrypka, and the exhibition of contemporary Ukrainian artists led by Ihor Abramovych. The journalists had also the opportunity to speak with the luminaries of the modern Ukrainian visual arts, Viktor Sidorenko and Anatolii Kryvolap, whose works will be featured in the art-exhibition in London.
The Festival is intended to discover the European Ukraine, a country with enormous potential and a rich history, for the British public.
“We have set an ambitious objective: to have the Europeans spot Ukraine as a spiritual country with a rich cultural heritage and immense creative and intellectual potential. During this festival, London residents and visitors will be able to see some of Ukraine’s most talented musicians, artists and designers. Our festival logo is a key, which symbolizes opening the door to Ukraine for the British people through The Days of Ukraine in the UK festival,” said Lada Firtash, FIRTASH FOUNDATION Head and The Days of Ukraine in the UK Organising Committee Chairperson.
The organisers of The Days of Ukraine in the UK added that they will do their best to make the festival an annual event.
