Zirka Savka begins the project “Drought”

As a part of  YMCA Lviv Art Club Zirka  Savka will create a project “Drought” (Protyag). It will be a series of videos about young Lviv artists: reflections on the art world between peers, we will show their pieces and workshops, mindsets and outlooks, things, that inspire and things, that annoy…

The project facilitates the way we perceive art and artists and gives the opportunity to dive deeper into real lives of creators. The leader of the project is Zirka Savka.

At the end of each season, Draught will host a joint exhibition.
