About this Project

The goal of this project is to create a productive dialogue among Ukrainian, Belarusian, and Russian intellectuals and artists who share the values of democratic governance, human and civil rights, and freedom of artistic expression, as well as among scholars of the recent history and culture of these three countries. This dialogue should help to better understand the complex interconnection of culture and politics in the region and showcase the three countries’ attempts to deal with the heritage of totalitarianism and pursuit of democratic reform, as well as raise the question of the role of art and culture in this endeavor.
