Ukrainian Crisis Media Center cordially invites you to participate in the Conference Ukraine: Thinking Together on May 15-19 in Kyiv, Ukraine.
The event will bring together twenty-five leading figures from the worlds of art, literature, and scholarship from all around the world for a series of public discussions with Ukrainian colleagues about the meaning of Ukrainian pluralism for the future of Europe, Russia, and the world.
This historically unprecedented encounter of international and Ukrainian intellectuals is initiated by Leon Wieseltier of The New Republic and Timothy Snyder of Yale University. There has never been a gathering in modern Ukraine with this kind of ambition and we would be very glad to see you among the guests.
