Flash mob honours national bard

  • Flash mob honours national bard
Issue 22, March 2010.

Early March saw hundreds of young Leopolitans participate in a flash mob action designed to honour national bard Taras Shevchenko, with each participant given a Ukrainian letter and invited to try and help recreate some of the most famous elections of the writer’s Ukrainian language works. The flash mob was part of promotional efforts designed to boost the forthcoming Shevchenko Fest, which is due to be help in Lviv on May 21-23. Much like Taras Shevchenko himself, the festival offers aspects for a wide range of talents and will have literary and arts elements.
