Art and culture are strong forces of resistance, but are also key to understand a people, a country, a nation.

Over a month ago, Russia invaded Ukraine, and in that short time span our world view has changed. We have seen our Ukrainian friends, colleagues, and partners fight for their country, both militarily but also through information, art, and culture.

Ukrainian Days is the festival that seeks to give Ukrainian culture the deserved space in Denmark, build bridges and closer ties between Denmark and Ukraine by celebrating Ukrainian arts and culture whilst fundraising money in support of Ukraine.

Expect a plethora of Ukrainian culture. From music to poetry to performances and debates. You will be able to experience workshops, interviews, and the opportunity to buy Ukrainian art.
