Children. War. Future. Children’s drawings created during the war in Ukraine will be present in the Kyiv subway
Charitable Foundation Future for Ukraine is initiating the charity project Children. War. Future. — an exhibition of children’s drawings created during the war in Ukraine.
The exhibition will take place in the Kyiv Metro from July 9 to 17. Three hundred children’s drawings will be exhibited in the upper lobby of the Zoloti Vorota metro station.
Part of the drawings for the exhibition were kindly provided by the project “Mom, I see war” which creates a collage of children’s works for the NFT charity auction and digital museum.
Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the subway has become a place for Ukrainians to live despite everything. Here we had a sleep, listened to concerts and celebrated weddings. Here our children are still forced to hide during air raids. From this point, we begin the countdown to the future.
In bomb shelters and subway cars, parking lots, or behind “two walls”, children are children. They play and explore the world, drawing their dreams, fears, and hopes. In the subway, we will exhibit 300 drawings of Ukrainian children who saw and felt the horrors of war.
The war in Ukraine left hundreds of children without parents, homes, and normal childhoods. We must draw the world’s attention and protect children and their future.
The opening event will take place on July 8 at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti metro station, which is closed to passengers at the entrance and exit.
11:00-11:15 — Official opening of the exhibition
11: 15-12:00 — Press conference
Passage of media accreditation will be going until July 6, 15:00. To receive accreditation, please fill out the form.
Future for Ukraine is an International Charitable Foundation, created by Ukrainians for Ukrainians. The organization brings together volunteers and professionals, NGOs and business representatives around the world to support victims of the war in Ukraine. The foundation focuses on helping those who need it most — Ukrainians wounded in the war, medical and social institutions, and children affected by the war.
“Mom, I see war” is a project from the creative and digital sector representatives to support the children of Ukraine. The project creates the world’s most significant manifestation collage of children’s drawings about the war in Ukraine. The project will put up the photo collage at an international digital NFT auction. Funds from it will be transferred to the humanitarian aid fund for children affected by the war.
