Valfair Bridge Forum 13.09.2022


Since February 24, 2022, Russia has continued the aggression that began in 2014 against Ukraine with a war of aggression, which obviously not only serves territorial conquest goals, but is also directed against Ukrainian society and its cultural identity. Probably only very few people in Germany and other western countries are familiar with it the historical development and the current state of Ukraine, with the self-image and lifestyle of the Ukrainians, with their values ​​and with their cultural, scientific and economic achievements.

The Valfair Bridge Forum “Ukrainian Style & Values” shall therefore contribute to a better knowledge and understanding and promote connections in all areas of civil society. This charity event marks the beginning of a Silk Road of good values, which leads from the Ukraine via Poland to Germany and back.

We are convinced that Ukraine will win in the end and will thus also defend our common values!

Slava Ukraini!

This  event contributes to charity fundraising and to:

>> Presentation and promotion of cultural identity as well as social values ​​and healthy value creation in Ukraine

>> Promotion of civil society cooperation between Ukraine, Poland and Germany

>> Presentation of Ukrainian products and services

Theatrical Performance

Yuliia Meliksetova and Tanya Kargaeva 
(currently: Zhywtschiki Prime Time Theater)
will create a performance with Ukrainian teenagers during the weekend before the event.

Home/Land: We have left our homes and our country. Now we are setting up our new flats or living as guests and the question about home arises all the time.
Where is my home?
What kind of home do I want it to be?
Is home a building, a country, a family, friends, a loved one?
We’ll explore the notion of home and homeland together with the children and turn our thoughts and feelings into performance art.

As both pedagogues have extensive experience in figurative and puppet theatre, the main focus will be on working with different types of materials, textures and colours.
