International Book Arsenal Festiva and Pictoric Illustrators Club open an exhibition of Ukrainian illustrators #StandWithUkraine: Art is a weapon. The exhibition will take place as part of the Tbilisi International Book Festival, which will run from 26 to 29 May 2022.
After eight years of military aggression against Ukraine, Russia has launched an unprecedented full-scale war in the center of Europe. Russian invasion is the biggest and the deadliest than any other conflict that took place in Europe since World War II. United in bravery and determination, Ukrainians are fighting the aggressor on all fronts.
While the Ukrainian army continues to defend every piece of Ukrainian territory and the very spirit of freedom and democracy in the world, the Ukrainian and world publishing community stands for our values together via joint projects at the book fairs and festivals around the world. We are very grateful to every Georgian for your invaluable support in recent months. You have done a lot and we ask you to be with us until our Victory!
The exhibition #StandWithUkraine: Art is a weapon presents the works of Ukrainian illustrators, depicting a reflection on terrible times and hope and peace for Ukraine. We continue to fight and invite you to stand with Ukraine, to join us in defending human rights and freedom in any way.
