People are invited to participate in a workshop Between the Vulnerable Territory and the Utopia which emphasizes the importance of collaboration and solidarity, beyond borders, language and ethnic groups. Participants will design a map of vulnerable territory based on their context, beliefs and experiences. Then together, we will analyze the map, and strategize resilient strategies towards transforming vulnerable territories into safe and inspiring spaces. At the end the workshop participants, individually or collaboratively, will design maps which imagine territories of possibilities. With collaborative facilitation by the artists listed below, some renewed awareness and imagination, the vulnerable territory will become the utopian territory – imaginary, but not necessarily unreal.

YURIY KRUCHAK and YULIA KOSTEREVA
Artists, organizers of the artistic platform Open Place. Works of Yuriy Kruchak and Yulia Kostereva transform the audience into the actors, creating a community consisting of the artist and the viewer, whose behavior and interaction serves to interpret and reveal social structures in an urban environment. Their activity not only addresses the relationship of art to the reality of life, but also always the relationship of the artist to the audience. Both of them are not only artists but work as curators and organizers, and thus unite the productive and receptive sides of the art business in their own life history.
