The Cultural Front: Art and Culture in Wartime Ukraine with Ian Grant

Enjoy our live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on December 4, 2023.

In the midst of war, Ukrainian culture is stronger than ever. Together with Emmy-award winning PBS director Ian Grant, we travel on an overnight train from Poland and explore how Ukraine is responding to war with an artistic revival. Artisans, artists, and keepers of culture in the capital Kyiv and the besieged city of Chernihiv exemplify Ukraine's cultural resistance. Join us to wander through beautiful street art, listen to Ukrainian music, learn more about the importance of Ukraine's national rail system, and witness the restoration of historic wooden houses in the country's north.

While Rick Steves' Europe has not vetted charities that support Ukraine, Ian recommends the following organizations:
