RIGHTS NOW! & The Ukraine War Archive
Thanks to the work of diplomats, regular communication by journalists, culture figures and others, the world understands the price of our resistance and the significance of Ukraine’s victory better. During this event, we will talk about the experience of people who communicate important messages from our country to the world with their films, TV stories, journalistic materials, photo reports.
The invited speakers work with international media and audiences. Each of them has found their own approach to conveying the truth about the Russian aggression and learned in practice which stories find a response among citizens in other countries and which do not.
So this conversation will be about the most successful experiences: how to be heard when you speak about Ukraine and Ukrainians abroad, and what arguments can be used to oppose the pessimists and sceptics who do not believe in our victory.
