Ukraine, Kyiv, Solomyansky district, Chokolivka

Chokolivka is a district of Kyiv and a home for many students of architecture, here the Architectural University dormitories and the Ostriv Platform are located. There are similar areas of the Soviet era in almost every Ukrainian city - these local landscapes, infrastructure and people are familiar to many of us from the childhood.  From the 18th to the 29th of August we do not go far from home, but we do something that derives from our everyday life and affects everyone. We remain part of the EASA global movement at home, and explore this year's theme, Apathy, on the ground. What are the limits of our apathy when we face our own backyard / district / city? We will learn to cooperate locally, use what is available, not consume too much and change our cities for the better in small steps.


* Online workshop (August 1-18) — participatory development of a mobile application that simplifies the ability of people to change their environment. * Theoretical workshops  (August 18-23)— testing of a mobile application and the creation of a library of modular solutions for public spaces. * Practical workshops (August 23-29) — design and construction of architectural forms together with active residents, upcycling workshop, conceptual interventions. * Public program  (From 15th of July) — lectures and discussions on related topics.
