The topic of the upcoming discussion is «Feminist Voices of Ukraine and Karabakh: Exploring Shared Struggles and Building International Solidarity». Although the war in Ukraine and the Karabakh conflict are different contexts, we are looking to build international solidarity for the people suffering as a result of these conflicts by trying to understand what is really happening and what people directly involved in these conflicts feel. 

Our speakers from Armenia: Liza Matevosyan, co-founder of «Women’s center. Shushi» NGo, human rights activist from Nagorno-Karabakh, displaced from Shushi(NK) and Knarik Mkrtchyan, Women’s Agenda NGO Co-founder, peace advocate, and Women, Peace and Security Agenda expert.
Speakers from Ukraine: «Variable name / Назва змінна» is an artistic group of Ukrainian artists and curators Maryna Marinichenko and Valerie Karpan. They work together mostly in participative art and cultural education since the first collaboration in the project «Exhibit it!» (Gallery «Labirynt», Lublin, Poland, 2018).
The group’s activities are focused on the processes of communication and exchange in an urban environment, visual (digital) anthropology, inclusiveness, practices of commemoration, and representation of memory and local narratives.

 Therefore, we will deliberate the questions:

1) What is the importance of language in articulating our experiences? How can we understand the relevance of wording such as – conflict, -aggression, etc., and its significance in our contexts? 

2) What have we learned from the experiences of these conflicts? 

3) And how has it reshaped our views and activist vision?

During the discussion we welcome all participants to join the creative activity we have prepared – we’re going to draw a Christmas star, the traditional attribute of Colyada (singing carols performance). The wonderful artist, Viktoriia Cherniakhivska, will guide and acquaint us with this tradition.

This event is moderated by Milena Abrahamian, queer feminist and activist from Armenia.
