Symposium

Depicting Donbas: Creative and critical responses to the current armed conflict in Ukraine


On Thursday 25 and Friday 26 April 2019, we host ‘Depicting Donbas’, a two-day event exploring how artists across genres are responding to the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region. In addition to a day of presentations and discussion with writers, theatre artists, photographers, filmmakers and academics on the role of creative practice in times of conflict, the symposium will also include a poetry reading to be held at UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies on the evening of Thursday 25 April and a performance by Ukraine’s Theatre of Displaced People at Birkbeck on Friday 26 April. The reading, the symposium, and the evening performance are all open to the public. ‘Depicting Donbas’ is co-organized by the Centre for Contemporary Theatre, Birkbeck Research in Aesthetics of Kinship and Community, and UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies.
