April 13, 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM | On-line by way of Zoom

In the 1940 and the 1950s hundreds of Ukrainian ladies ended up sentenced to extended-expression incarceration in camps and prisons of the Gulag for serious or alleged anti-Soviet crimes. Despite the back-breaking work, permanent hunger and chilly, normal exhaustion, disorder and accidents, the abuse of guards and convicted criminals, and the intolerable dwelling problems, the want for elegance not only remained but at times even grew much better among the all those woman political prisoners. The women and women invariably drew their inspiration from traditional Ukrainian culture, as the type and content material of their artistic initiatives testify. What drove the females to sing and engage in music, to compose poetry, to embroider and draw, to celebrate classic holidays, to engage with beginner theater, to savor the splendor of nature—expending what was remaining of their energy, getting meager means, and exposing on their own to very likely punishment? What gave these a artistic urge to these outcast captives? Who had been they, these camp artists and artisans? What purpose did resourceful activity engage in in the survival techniques of Ukrainian gals locked up as political prisoners in the Soviet Union?
