Colours of Freedom Art Exhibition and Fundraiser - Woollahra

Colours of Freedom Art Exhibition and Fundraiser - Woollahra

“Colours of Freedom” is a captivating art exhibition dedicated to the Ukrainian Independence Day, celebrated on the 24th of August. This vibrant showcase brings together Ukrainian artists in Australia who have embraced a unique challenge: creating their artworks using only two colours, blue and yellow. Symbolising hope, freedom, and happiness, these hues encapsulate the spirit of Ukraine’s journey towards independence, celebrating the country’s sovereignty and resilience.

Through a diverse range of mediums and artistic styles, 5 artists explore the essence of their shared love of nature, the power of positivity during challenging times that embodies the spirit of freedom and fosters cultural exchange between Ukrainian and Australian communities.

Join us at “Colours of Freedom” to admire the wonders of nature, the beauty of art and to support Ukrainian people in their pursuit of liberty. Money raised from the profits of the exhibition will go to humanitarian aid for Ukrainians in need.

ARTISTS: Elena Levkovskaya, Olena Vigovska, Natalya Kravchenko, Nataliia Vyaz and Tetiana Koldunenko

Sponsored by: Woollahra Municipal Council and Ukrainian Council of NSW.

AFUO and UCNSW are delighted to announce that for the first time worldwide well known Ukrainian music band “Antytila” is going to perform in Sydney!

From the very beginning of full-scale invasion they swapped their musical instruments for guns and started to protect their lands with millions of Ukrainians.

You will be able to hear their new album MLNL that was released on the second day of War and their trending songs such as:TDME, 2Step, Fortec Bakhmut, Viryla, Lovy Moment etc.

‘’You discovered our band from interviews on radio and TV. Now it’s time to feel and listen to our music live. All this time we’ve been receiving a huge amount of support from the Australia and New Zealand , so we are truly convinced that people are waiting for our performance. We are inviting you all to join us on our Australian-New-Zealand tour. Best light and sound, Ukrainian groove and Ukrainian soul in each song. All this will be waiting for you. And what is more – true faith in our Victory!’’ – says frontman of “Antytila” Taras Topolia.
