In solidarity with Ukraine

Färgfabriken stands with Ukraine.

To all the friends we made during our three project years in Kharkiv, Ternopil & Lviv, Poltava and Odessa; all cities now under fire from the Kremlin we say: The blue and yellow of both our flags reminds us that we stand in solidarity with you for Ukraine's independence and freedom.

In 2014 when the first stages of the Russian military incursion into Ukrainian territory had already begun, Färgfabriken worked  with Ukrainian partners and youth on the New Urban Topologies project in a spirit of free exchange, democracy, communication, belief in the future and strengthening of civil society in their country. Our thoughts today are with them and all of Ukraine.
