Arts and culture illuminate the better parts of humanity, and do not exist on a separate plane from political, social or moral issues. This is made evident by the countless acts of unity and support for Ukraine in the face of this crisis.
We are inspired by the courage and resilience of Ukraine and its people as they defend their lives and way of life. We hope that their spirit ushers in peace and understanding around the world.” IMG
