The exhibition

In March 2023 the exhibition "Youth work in war time" opens at the European Youth Center in Strasbourg. The photos for the exhibition were gathered by the participants of the study visit and seminar for youth workers and representatives of youth centres providing youth work during war time in Ukraine. The activity brought together 35 participants from Ukraine at the European Youth Centre in Strasbourg from 5 to 10 December 2022.

This exhibition is about the resilience and resistance of youth workers in Ukraine who continue their work with and in support of young people. The photos show realities and transformations of youth work in the conditions of the war-torn country, as activities have become even more diverse in response to the challenges that the war brought to Ukraine.

Here, visitors of the European Youth Center in Strasbourg will also find the consequences of the Russian Federation's military aggression against Ukraine for youth infrastructure facilities. However, the exhibition also documents how young people have already been taking steps to reconstruct and create youth spaces and centers throughout Ukraine.
