R.T. Weatherman Foundation

Exhibit Opening at Rayburn House Office Building on July 8, 2024

WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / June 17, 2024 / The R. T. Weatherman Foundation is proud to announce the opening of the exhibit War Diaries: Unheard Voices of Ukrainian Children at the Rayburn House Office Building, located at 45 Independence Ave SW, Washington, D.C., on July 8, 2024.

The exhibit will be open to the general public from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

War Diaries: Unheard Voices of Ukrainian Children is an art installation that features firsthand accounts from Ukrainian children who suffered under Russian occupation following the full-scale invasion in February 2022. In the sharing of personal artifacts and recollections, the exhibition highlights the ongoing terror and human rights violations that Russia visits upon the most vulnerable members of Ukrainian society. This project is dedicated to fostering empathy, understanding, and meaningful dialogue about the emotional and psychological impacts on the younger generations caught in the conflict.

Featuring 14 meticulously chosen stories that reflect a balance of gender, age, region, and narrative type, War Diaries shines a light on the multitude of untold experiences through the eyes of children. Visitors will be deeply moved by the visual representations of war, brought to life with compelling audio and video interviews, along with original diaries and sketches, offering a meaningful connection to the personal belongings of the children whose stories are shared.

The exhibition has been shown in numerous important venues in Europe and has enjoyed widespread critical acclaim in international media (read more HERE).

It is our hope that through this exhibit, more people will grasp the critical importance of supporting Ukraine in its struggle for peace and a stable, democratic future.

Press Invitation:

Members of the press are invited to attend a brief press conference at 4:30 p.m., featuring remarks from policymakers. A reception will follow the press conference. This is an opportunity for the media to engage directly with those whose lives have been profoundly affected by the conflict and to hear firsthand accounts of their experiences.
