Free Ukraine cordially invites you to a charity dinner and art auction at Frescohallen at Bergen Børs Hotel.

"The war in Ukraine has never been closer to us in both time or place. We in Fritt Ukraina, in cooperation with our partners in Lviv and the Lviv National Academy of Arts, wish to show our support and at the same time recognise that we are part of Europe. This auction is a way to directly support both to those who are fighting for freedom at the front and the art students' work and everyday life in a country at war," says Secretary General Natalia Golis, adding:

"I hope as many people as possible show their support and enthusiasm for these works, which have come to Bergen directly from the battlefield in the East, as a reminder of our responsibility as fellow human beings. 'It's better to do a little than to think a lot' as Roy Jacobsen said. We live by that motto every day."

Advance bids for all works can be registered until April 23 at 23:59. Advance bids must be submitted by email to post@frittukraina.no. Remember to include the name of the artwork together with your bid.

Bids start at NOK 1,500 for all works.

*5% art tax will be added

All ticket revenue and donations received will be shared equally between Fritt Ukraina and the Lviv National Academy of Arts.

Organisers: Fritt Ukraina in collaboration with the Lviv National Academy of Arts, in partnership with De Bergenske, Høyersten Contemporary, and Blomqvist.
