In samenwerking met Kunsten '92 en De Zaak Nu

We maken ons grote zorgen over de gevolgen van de grootscheepse vijandelijkheden in Oekraïne voor de inwoners van het land. Om solidariteit te tonen en om medeleven en steun te betuigen, organiseert het culturele veld verschillende activiteiten met de campagne #hArtforUkraine.
