If you are a huge fan of art, delicious wine, and good causes, then the Lviv Art and Wine Festival is definitely for you. The charitable festival of art and wine will take place from December 2 to December 3.
Briefly about the Lviv Art and Wine Festival
It’s worth noting that this is already the fourth charitable festival of its kind in Lviv. This year, its main slogan is: “Support Yours. Return Yours.” And this is not surprising because, according to the organizers of the Lviv Art and Wine Festival, they have two main goals.
The first is to support Ukrainian winemakers and promote their wines, which are no less, if not better, than imported ones. The second is to emphasize that many Ukrainian artists are known internationally under a different nationality (effectively, Russia has appropriated them, thus taking a significant part of our authentic culture). This includes figures like Kazimir Malevich, Vasyl Yermilov, David Burliuk, Alexandra Exter, and many others. These ideas inspired the organizers.
It is essential to mention that the festival is charitable. A portion of the funds raised from entrance tickets and the sale of products at the festival will be donated to the purchase and production of prosthetics for civilians and military personnel affected by the war, as part of the UNBROKEN project.
