“..there are not children - there are people”Janusz Korczak
Aware of the situation related to the Russian aggression in Ukraine and touched by the drama of the nation of the Ukrainian state, we feel obliged with our work and artistic activity to support the fate of the most defenseless, often unaware of the causes of the drama they are experiencing - Ukrainian children.
Since the outbreak of the war, approximately 3 million Ukrainian citizens have crossed our border - most of them are women and children.
Freedom - act of our existence, being the highest value of a human being, at the same time becomes the easiest area of manipulation leading to taking control and enslavement. That is why it is so important to discharge the emerging human emotions with art, a creative act of expression ... - overcoming the aggression that leads to wars.
Culture and art, with the participation of young but already well-educated artists, confirm the thesis that beauty is an Aristotelian synonym for excellence and goodness – it is a perspective we never want to lose and a goal we always want to pursue.
