Cultural gathering for Ukrainian students


On the eve of the second anniversary of the start of the war in Ukraine, on Friday, 23 February 2024, the Study in Prague consortium of universities organised a get-together for its Ukrainian students. The event took place at the Hybernska Campus, in the space of Charles University, Didaktikon.

The purpose of the meeting was to bring together Ukrainian students from schools associated with the Study in Prague consortium and to create an informal opportunity to establish new contacts, as well as to express support and solidarity with all those affected by this war conflict.

The evening was held in a friendly and relaxed spirit, but emotions sometimes prevailed. And no wonder. The programme reflected the personal experiences of (not only) AMU and UMPRUM students from the war in Ukraine. The evening brought together almost 100 students.

The programme included a performance of The Normal Life of students and trainees of the Theatre Faculty of AMU, a video projection with a guided tour of the work of Dača and a Self-portrait of Iryna Babanina from UMPRUM. Olena Khalina from the Faculty of Music and Dance of the Academy of Performing Arts sang three operatic arias, and Anastasiia Babiiuk (also from HAMU) sang a selection of Ukrainian songs across genres. This was followed by video projections by UMPRUM student Anna Ivakhno Where are you from? and Olha Serhiivna Lysa’s Ghost of Wheat. The evening ended with a group of films by students of the Faculty of Film and Television of AMU, namely Childhood, Youth, Adulthood by the collective of the FAMU Short-Term Mobility Programme, Mama by Maria Felenko and 8 and 1 Year of War by Daria Kovalchuk.
