Shevchenko charity festival in Moryntsi
"She.fest", a nationwide charity festival dedicated to Taras Shevchenko, is to be held in his native Moryntsi village
The event will take place for the second time already. Its goal is to reject stereotypes about this figure and let Ukrainians discover new Shevchenko – “not a traditional image of a prophet, but rather a freak, random person, hipster, and extraordinary genius at the time”.
Visitors will learn it, not only as a poet but also as an artist and a fighter, will get acquainted with the history of the life of Shevchenko. The program of the festival introduces readings, master classes, workouts, Ukrainian films, theater performances, excursions, Ukrainian martial arts. Also, visitors will have an opportunity to hear Shevchenko’s poems in rap and rock styles.
“We have some fundamental points that we adhere to in organizing the event. The first is charity. We collect money for the Ukrainian soldiers. Last year we were able to buy an imager for guys who fought in the ATO area. Secondly, it is an antialcoholic festival,” as said the organizers of She.fest.
The first national festival of Taras Shevchenko took place 15-16 August 2014 in Moryntsi. Five thousand people attended the event, and about 19 000 UAH were collected to buy the thermal imager for Ukrainian Army.
Shevchenko charity festival in Moryntsi (Cherkasy region) is to be held on August 22-23.
