Donbass Odyssey is an art project which tells stories of cities and towns in the Donbas region of Ukraine. Since 2015 Donbass Odyssey (Одиссея Донбасс) has been collecting oral histories of internally displaced, as well as mental maps of their hometowns and houses. These oral and visual stories are later shared through art interventions in public space and exhibitions. Donbass Odyssey has exhibited and completed interventions in Ukrainian cities of Kyiv, Odesa and Lviv, and was recently shown at a Migration Stories Festival in Izmir, Turkey.
The authors of Donbass Odyssey art project (Darya Tsymbalyuk,
Julia Philipjeva and Victor Corwic) will discuss their work in conversation with Dr Victoria Donovan.
The exhibition will be open from 30th of January to 13th of February at the Byre Theatre.
The event is free (ticketed) and open to all.
