GOGOLFEST STARTUP, Mariupol, April 27 — May 1, 2018

GOGOLFEST is an international multidisciplinary contemporary art festival. Since 2007 the festival has been held in Kyiv bringing creative and active minds together. GOGOLFEST creates a communication platform for artists from different countries and backgrounds.

Art manifests itself in different forms — theatre, music, cinema, literature, sculpture, visual art, performance. However, GOGOLFEST goes beyond and represents works of art that combine different disciplines, for example, theatre, music and visual arts.

In 2018, GOGOLFEST changes its concept and launches local cultural festivals on the international level across the country. The festival encourages Mariupol to move forward and become the cultural and tourist center of Ukraine.

Why Mariupol?

The community and city council of Mariupol expressed their interest in supporting GOGOLFEST. The festival aims to transform Mariupol into the cultural and tourist center of the country by bringing together various art initiatives from Ukraine, especially from Mariupol and Donetsk regions and creating international collaborative projects with foreign artists.

The festival’s objectives consist in mobilizing active creative cluster of Mariupol and Donetsk regions, motivating creative initiatives, creating art projects that will continue after the festival’s end.

The strategy of the festival envisages the revitalization of the city and regional spaces, those include historical and symbolic areas, that are either abandoned or are just developing as centers of cultural activity.
