In June of 2022, NGO Cultural Traffic organised a series of pop-up residencies for artists and other creatives in the Carpathian Mountains, a relatively safe area in western Ukraine. Organized by Olena Kasperovych, an art curator from Kharkiv, the residencies did not require artists to create any “finished products” (artworks, exhibitions, texts), but instead offered them a space to recuperate artistically, physically and mentally.

In August 2022 CAP invited the participants of the pop-up residencies in Vyzhnytsa and Creative Rural Hub to reflect on their art and working process in the times of war. They discussed how they are processing displacement, grief and a sense of loss through art and text.
