Ukrainian Days

Shortly after Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, we hosted a joint meeting with the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House under the title “You can do something for Ukraine.”


During the evening, a volunteer group of young Ukrainians and Danes in Copenhagen was formed – and by Easter 2022, the “Ukrainian Days” cultural festival opened.


The festival featured music, theatre, poetry, workshops, food, talks focusing on Ukrainian culture and history, and an art market with unique works from Denmark and Ukraine. All activities aimed to give guests an opportunity to celebrate and explore Ukrainian culture and raise money for Ukrainian organisations.


700 guests participated in the festival, which was created in collaboration between the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House, Poetry House, LiteraturHaus and World Wide Words.


About the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House

Based in Kyiv, the Ukrainian-Danish Youth House works to strengthen young people’s democratic education, active citizenship, their participation in the reconstruction of Ukraine, and to build bridges across Europe. It is a platform for young people, by young people and with young people, focusing on dialogue, cultural exchange, and youth participation. A young team of employees is responsible for the Youth House’s day-to-day operations, funding, and ongoing support of active young people and organisations in Ukraine, as well as organising courses, cultural projects, and exchange programmes that strengthen the young democracy in Ukraine and Denmark.

The youth house was established in 2020 and is run by a consortium of Danish Cultural Institute and the Danish Youth Council with an annual grant of DKK 11 million from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
