The war in Ukraine has now entered its second month and it is difficult to anticipate all the damages: children who never met their fathers, women who lost their sons in the war. Such uncertainty and anguish of life during wartime is a lonely and painful experience, full of fear and unfulfilled dreams. Even though these stories are dreadful, we, at Artten Gallery want to find a human and innovative angle by weaving hope and optimism into the lives of Ukrainian people through art and crafts.
Every Saturday, we bring together Ukrainian families and Swedes to braid a camouflage net for the Ukrainian Army. We weave discarded textiles from Swedish homes into a piece of art that saves lives.
