During the forums, we are always looking for formats that will help attract new audiences, and also make culture feel not only as high art, but also a simple household thing: this is how and what we eat, what we wear, what we play and how we celebrate . Immersion into the atmosphere of folk celebrations, children's games and open conversations about simple human things (for example, "Should we dress for people or for ourselves?" or "How to open the joy of reading to children") that help to get to know each other and ourselves better.
And yet, SkovorodaFest was an attempt of utterly important acquaintance. Wandering thinker Hryhoriy Skovoroda, who had already become a brand of Sloboda Ukraine, is an "ideal philosopher" for adults and children. His "philosophy of the heart" is focused on the concept of happiness and includes self-knowledge, kinship, freedom, gratitude. Therefore, instead of a thousand words about Hryhoriy Savych, we invited Uzhhorod residents to a one-day street festival for the whole family to spend this day as Skovoroda himself could. Interactives, games, master classes, conversations, films, performances of song groups, souvenirs of Sloboda Ukraine – there was a lot of fun and happiness.
