Cultural Forum "SlobodaKult". Program in the ILKO Gallery

As we announced, the most interesting socio-cultural projects and phenomena of Slobozhanshchyna will be presented on May 15-29 in Uzhgorod and Mukachevo at the "SlobodaKult" multidisciplinary forum. Many of the "SlobodaKult" events will be held in the ILKO Gallery.

100 events in two weeks (entrance to all events is free), about 150 participants and one and a half years of preparation - this is the forum in figures.

Since the invention of cinema, documentary films for Kharkiv directors have been the main way of showing those aspects of life that could have remained unnoticed or disappeared from memory without their cameras. Kharkiv directors were discovering the mysteries of life through the cinema, investigating, recording the fragments of history. Chronicles of life, names and events of importance for Kharkiv, for art, for history, for the memory of all Ukraine, are presented in the film program of the forum "SlobodaKult".


Oksana Koklonska (Kharkiv) - director, curator, art director. Founder of the Academy of Visual Arts Kharkov.
