Join us online to hear from Dr Kateryna Goncharova, Ukrainian Heritage Crisis Specialist at the World Monuments Fund, about the Russian military invasion and its impact on Ukrainian Heritage today.
As well as providing an overview of the significance of Ukrainian culture and heritage, this event will outline the immediate threats and risks posed by the war; explaining how they are impacting a nation's fragile historic environment.
Attacks on heritage and identity during this conflict have been wide-reaching and have included targeted attacks within historic cities, the destruction of cultural sites and the looting of museums and archival collections.
While the war and its effect on Ukrainian heritage has been reported widely, there have been notable cases of misunderstanding and misinformation. Through this event we will explore these issues and hear – from the ground – what’s taking place.
Please join us to hear what can be done to safeguard heritage and how people and institutions can support Ukrainian heritage professionals and their work today.
