Ukraine Season is a multidisciplinary project that presents the culture of Ukraine, while touching upon the current situation in the country and supporting Ukrainian artists that lost the opportunity to work productively in light of Russia’s invasion.

The goals of the project are to present the achievements of Ukrainian artists to the Finnish audience, and to make these artists acquainted with their Finnish colleagues. It is important to highlight the culture of Ukraine that is under the threat of destruction.

Also, the Season presents the achievements of the Association’s cultural projects such as the Perespiv choir and the Ukrainian Theatre in Finland.
