Demonstration at Dam square
Amsterdam, 24 February 2023
for freedom, democracy and Ukrainian culture
No country should be able to attack its neighbor, slaughter its people, and steal its lands at will.
Ukraine’s battle to throw off a Russian invasion is a defense of the rules-based international system.
AGORA AS THE CENTER STAGE
The virtual Museum and Theater as a symbol of the fight for freedom and democracy.
The idea and vision that led to the project of the Mariupol Virtual Museum and Theater is the brutal destruction of life and cultural infrastructure in Ukraine by the Russian occupier.
Culture cannot be destructed by weapons because we carry it in our minds and our virtual museum represents the spiritual strength of human creativity.
The true expression of cultures can be found in our intangible heritage.
Music, theatre, stories, rituals and more: the performing arts in its broadest sense.
We create the tool to assemble all scattered ideas, visions and performances together in one virtual museum.
DynamischArchief.nl will act as an intermediary for artists to obtain funding for productions that fit the Agora objectives.
