“Over the course of the past year difficult situation in Ukraine has been a topic of great interest and concern around the world. A peaceful country in the heart of Europe suddenly turned into a new conflict zone.

How did this happen?

Did anyone see it coming?

Who were the people who took part in this revolution?

What did they want to achieve?

What was the role of the young people in this historical movement?

How did it turn in the strongest social and political activism movement in the world?

The photo exhibition “ Ukraine: Inspiring Dignity” tells this story in a visual form.

Ukrainian Connection Society invites you to experience the events that happened on Maidan in Kyiv, at Filmbase, Curved Street in Dublin’s Temple Bar.

We would love to see you there and to share the moving story of Maidan with all Irish people.”
