Please note that this is a free day to visit, but the Intertwined Concert is ticketed.
On 24 February will be the second anniversary of a brutal war in the heart of Europe - the day when Russia has started the full-scale invasion of Ukraine. In 2022 - the lives of 45 million of Ukrainians have toppled as rockets hit and the Russian tanks started entering the peaceful Ukrainian cities. The day that millions woke up to war, and in the following weeks, millions started to leave to seek refuge in Europe.
Among those millions were many talented artists, musicians, and craftsmen whose passions had been stopped by war. Many of them have found their new home - Scotland and formed the “Intertwined” collective.
The "Intertwined" team in Edinburgh, and prominent Ukrainian activists and organisations, seek meaningful unity to bring out the amazing talents of Ukrainians and residents of Scotland who supported them. To mark this important day, we invite you to St. Mary's Cathedral for an immersion in the rich tapestry of Ukrainian and Scottish cultures. This will include:
- “Intertwined”, a concert of classical, folk and pop music
- Photo exhibition, "Portrait of a Soldier"
- The sale of artwork from the frontline
- A Ukrainian crafts and food fair
- A meeting with a soldier.
Every beat, every note, and every brushstroke is a call to action. All funds raised during this electrifying event will directly support the heroes of Ukraine. Join us in raising awareness about the ongoing struggle for freedom.
