Semente Cultural Productions commissioned the artist Jenny Svenberg Bunnel a painting to be pictured on this year’s Stockholm Women’s International Jazz Festival official poster. An original piece of art, a acrylic on wood, 125cm x 125cm, entitled “Peace”, that we decided to put to auction, in order to collect money in support of Ukrainian cultural life. Fasching Jazz Club, venue of the festival and partner, joined us in supporting and promoting this initiative. Under the supervision of Ukrainian Institute in Kyiv, we agreed to support a small and virtuose Jazz Club in the heart of Kyiv, 32Jazz Club, that has always been open since the beginning of the war, in order to give both local artists and audience the opportunity to keep alive the cultural life in the capital of Ukraine.
On their website you can read this words:
“Despite all of the recent events, 32Jazz Club team decided to resume work - not only to support the morale of our visitors, but also to financially support the musicians and the economy of our country. 32JazzClub is a well-known jazz club in the capital of Ukraine. It was established as a result of a creative collaboration between two galleries, Kyiv Vozdvizhenka Arts House and Lviv`s Dzyga, led by their founders Markiyan Ivashchyshyn and Viktor Savkiv. The club was officially launched on December 1, 2017, hosting the first concert of the 17th International JazzBez Festiva in Kyiv. We strive to preserve Ukrainian jazz culture and remain a unique cultural place on the map of Kyiv.
Let’s support the music of free people in a free and independent Ukraine! “
