Youth Festivals in Ukraine and Denmark: Our impressions

01-10-2021

What we found out from our Molodvizh, Opinion Festival and Ungdommens Folkemøde experiences

Over the past few weeks, the team of Ukrainian-Danish Youth House participated in 3 major youth festivals: Molodvizh (Lviv, Ukraine), Opinion Festival (Severodonetsk, Ukraine) and Ungdommens Folkemøde (Copenhagen, Denmark). Our goal was not only to talk about the Youth House, but to see what interests and concerns young people in both countries and how we can tailor our activities to suit their needs and wishes.


In Lviv we presented the Photo Lab of Important Stories exhibit together with some of the workshop participants, allowing them to tell the audience about their creative process firsthand.

Also, we initiated a “Breaking walls, building bridges” art-project, where anyone could express their understanding of what unites youth. The project was held in Severodonetsk as well at the very same time!

We also held a showing of a documentary "The Distant Barking of Dogs" by Danish director Simon Lereng Wilmont, which is based on the story of a 10-year-old boy Oleg, who lives on the frontlines in Donetsk region.
