The Menu das Artes Association for Refugee Artists and/or at Risk Artists - MDA Association was founded by partners from Menu das Artes and aims to introduce Ukraine to other countries in the world through its people's art and cultural expressions.
The horrors of the Ukraine war make us think about the fragility of our own human condition as a society.
Art unites, art expresses life and the Association will promote Ukrainian art, which goes beyond the current catastrophic scenario. This initiative will tell the story of a country through landscapes, photographs, abstract expressions and other forms of experience that bring a reflection on life in Ukraine.
We want to provide material, space and voice to Ukrainian artists so that they can present their art to the world, as a European nation and as representatives of the culture of their people.
In our exhibitions, arts will be presented in many different ways. Plastic arts, whether canvases, sculptures, handicrafts, as well as music and cultural expressions.
