Ukraine: Dnipro History Museum launches platform to integrate IDPs

The Dnipro History Museum is launching a platform for art therapy, named ‘East Point’. It will include a series of art-therapeutic events at the museum, and a series of theatrical local performance tours in the city’s residential areas.

On 11 August at 15:00, the first candy-making quest ‘Chocolate Story. Dnipro’ will take place.

According to statistics provided by the EU Delegation in Ukraine, there are more than 115,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) living in Dnipro at the moment. As per the Dnipro History Museum, IDPs show high interest in the history and culture of the city. Today about 80% of the museum’s visitors are IDPs. 

The museum believes that knowledge of local history will help them better navigate the city and adapt to the local community.

The project is funded by the EU and implemented by IZOLYATSIA, a non-profit non-governmental Ukrainian platform for contemporary culture.

All project events are free of charge for both IDPs and residents of Dnipro.

Event announcements can be found on the museum’s website, on the Telegram channel or on their official FB page.
