Voices of Dignity: Poetry and Music from Ukraine on February 24th, 15:30.

Ukraine House in Denmark, in collaboration with Goethe Institut Danmark, Mungo Park, and Danish Cultural Institute, is pleased to announce the special event "Voices of Dignity: poetry and music from Ukraine'' on February 24, 15:30. This gathering will mark the second anniversary of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, serving as an international declaration of solidarity for continued support for Ukraine, particularly its arts and cultural sector.

When: 15:30 PM, February 24, Saturday
Location:  Ukraine House in Denmark, Strandgade 27B 

The brutality of the Russian agression over the past two years has often left the Ukrainian people voiceless, facing difficulty to express  the impact of war on daily lives and aspirations for the future. Ukrainians have re-estimated the value of many words that are often taken for granted in other countries: the notions of home, dignity, freedom, light, darkness, goodness and humanity. It is thanks to the Ukrainian contemporary generation of poets and writers that we often regain the ability to express how we feel, how we can carry on the struggle for freedom despite all the odds. I am delighted that we are able to bring the voices of brilliant Ukrainian authors to the attention of the Danish audience.

"I am especially grateful to our partners and the Danish actors who will recite the works of the Ukrainian authors in Danish and English in an act of unique solidarity with Ukraine," says Nataliia Popovych, chairperson of Ukraine House in Denmark. 

Six prominent Ukrainian poets and authors – Kateryna Kalytko, Iya Kiva, Halyna Kruk, Iryna Tsilyk, Iryna Shuvalova and Oleksandr Mykhed - even amidst the challenges of Russian aggression have found the voice to speak about the unspeakable. While the Ukrainian authors will read their poetry and prose in Ukrainian, their texts will be read in Danish and English by well-known Danish actors and special guests, including Ghita Nørby, Sofie Gråbøl, Mia Lerdam, Nicklas Søderberg Lundstrøm and Claes Bang. The evening will be accompanied by a musical arrangement by Olesya Zdorovetska.

Hosted by Ukraine House in Denmark, Goethe Institut Danmark, Mungo Park, and Danish Cultural Institute, this event stands as an international declaration of support for Ukraine's arts and cultural scene.
