On Thursday, January 11, 2018, Razom organized a discussion about the new book ‘The Ukrainian Night: An Intimate History of Revolution’ written by Yale History Professor, Marci Shore.
No report can compare to a personal story full of emotions and energy. Four Razom volunteers performed at a storytelling festival in New York City, sharing their stories from the stage with everyone who came to listen.
Razom is happy to announce that with the support of our donors and volunteers we were able to sponsor the transportation of 20 artists participating in the Galicia Cult festival in Kharkiv that ran Oct. 2-18, 2016.
Galicia Cult is a multidisciplinary social-cultural forum that aims to introduce eastern Ukrainians to modern western-Ukrainian culture. Besides promoting a cultural exchange, the forum also intends to break common stereotypes in both the east and the west.
On October 8th, 2016 Razom volunteers organized a costume photoshoot with a photographer Waytao Shing (Getty, SXSW). The idea came from Alyona Owens, a volunteer from Izmail, Ukraine who now lives in Austin, TX and is the founder of Choobchik, an online learning platform. Big thanks to Austin TX Ukrainians group and Chicon Collective for being part of this event.
“There is no place like Soyuzivka” is the slogan of this Ukrainian Heritage Resort perched high in the Catskills. And there is a reason that this slogan rings true. On July 8 – 10 Soyuzivka hosted its 10th annual Heritage Festival which was a compilation of Ukrainian artists and artisans from across the United States, Canada and Ukraine. And as usual the venue didn’t disappoint, as participants frolicked and dance well into the night.
