About this event

Let me kindly invite you on the first tour of the series of tours dedicated to Ukrainian cultural heritage. This 1-hour tour is planned in the form of my telling and photo and video slide show from my laptop. We'll start with an acquaintance with the Ukrainian national embroidered shirt - vyshyvanka - a thousand years old garment, amulet of the nation. After that, comes the turn of poetry. I want to acquaint you with a poem written by the prominent Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko. I will read the most perfect English translation of this poem made by Irish novelist Ethel Lilian Voynich. You will certainly understand why T. Shevchenko is considered a spiritual prophet of the Ukrainian people. The final part of the tour will be dedicated to the Ukrainian art of music and dance. My only wish with this tour is to bring to you positive and inspiring emotions. It would be my genuine pleasure to meet you on my tours again. Sincerely welcome!
