Parade for Peace in the East - Presented by kosa kolektiv in collaboration with St. Vladimir's Institute
**VARIOUS EVENTS DURING TORONTO UKRAINIAN FESTIVAL - PLS READ BELOW FOR DETAILS**
Over 6,000 have died in Ukraine's Donbass region due to ongoing conflict. Thousands have been displaced from their homes and another generation must grow up with the traumas of war.
Kosa kolektiv and friends invite you to join them as they stage a theatrical parade for peace, bringing attention to this conflict in the way they do best - through collaborative arts. We are calling all peace-lovers from our diverse communities to march with us in the Ukrainian Festival Parade, bridging peace within and between our communities here in the Ukrainian diaspora.
We invite you to bring instruments, noise-makers, your finest ethnic regalia, and messages of hope for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.
