New humanitarian campaign in Romania raises funds for Ukrainian artists
The Theater Union of Romania (UNITER), in partnership with the Worldwide Reading Project and CITD (The Center for International Theater Development) in Baltimore, announced the launch of a new humanitarian campaign aimed at helping Ukrainian artists affected by war. The “Romanian artists for Ukrainian artists” fundraising project will take place between May 16 and June 15.
“Following the UNITER proposal, 46 state and independent cultural institutions responded favourably to the call to be together, through theater, to preserve the dignity of artists and to support Ukrainian culture,” reads the press release.
Thus, between May 16 and June 15, cultural institutions in Romania and Moldova will organize reading performances based on texts written by Ukrainian authors after the outbreak of the war or will hold performances from their repertoire and donate the funds collected.
Funds raised from ticket sales, donations and sponsorships can be transferred to a special account opened by the UNITER Association. Further details will be communicated on Uniter.ro, on the websites of the partner theaters, and Mystage.ro.
