On May 15, as a part of Art-Wednesday project, activist and artist Yulia Makluk will hold an Artist talk titled Climate art labs, which will discuss the experimental interaction of artists, activists and scientists on the topic of climatic changes in Ukraine.
Climate art labs existed in a form of the 8-day residence in Slavske (Lviv Oblast), which results the creation of 7 scientific and activist art tandems. These tandems are now working on the disclosure of the climatic change phenomenon in Ukraine. These works can be seen in May and June at exhibitions in Chernivtsi, Poltava and Kiev.
