As participants of the art residency are now searching for projects and art works ideas, we share with you a story of our friend Valeriya from Donetsk.

She has a pack of glass beads in her house with a powerful story behind it. She wants to give it away.

She bought it 10 years ago back in Donetsk (the city occupied by Russia now). She brought it with her when she was escaping the war, because she used to weave necklaces and costumes with these beads.

So she took it along with all the stuf while relocating. But since the escape in 2014 she never touched it, as she's lost the value of weaving these beads, because her psychological trauma.

These breads will be used by artists in their art projects.
