EXARC-YEAR Center: Support Network of Ukraine (SUN)

York (UK), Nykøbing F. (DK), Lviv (UA), November 1, 2022

To our colleagues in Ukraine!

EXARC, YEAR (York Experimental Archaeological Research Center) and Ukrainian expert Yarem Ivantsiv joined forces to support the creation of the Ukrainian Network (SUN).

Both EXARC and YEAR Center are members of a large, active international network, which is our strength and the easiest method to be closer to each of you.

Therefore, if you are an open-air museum worker, an experimental archaeologist, a simultaneous interpreter or an expert in ancient crafts, it is important that you join the initiative. It is not necessary to become a member of EXARC or any other organization, if you are from Ukraine and wish to join, please contact Yarema Ivantsiva.

You will receive (online) professional contacts, literature, discussions and materials, including help with management issues, exchange of experiences and best knowledge.

EXARC alone has 400 members in 40 countries, many of whom may be of service to you after the war is over. We asked museum freelancers, non-governmental organizations and other networks to join the initiative and participate in our partner program. The contact person from Ukraine is Yarem Ivantsiv.

We are convinced that a strong international network together with Ukrainian colleagues will benefit both you and the international community. We believe that research, education and preservation of cultural heritage are vital for every country. Also, given the conditions that have developed, Ukrainian culture must be protected.

We will be glad to hear and support your suggestions.

with best regards,

 Aimee, Roland and Yarema.
