PRESENTATION OF THE QR-GUIDE ABOUT GERMAN DNIPRO

On November 22, as a part of Germany Weeks in Ukraine, the QR-Guide of German period in Dnipro is presented in the Artsvit Gallery. This is an innovative tourist route, which includes 16 buildings designed by German architects. The project was implemented at the initiative of the Consulate General of Germany, in cooperation with the Dnipro Council and the Dnipro Development Agency, with the support of the Dnipro Chief Architect.

A feature of the QR-guide is the fact that anyone can walk on their own in the German track and through the special mobile application learn more about the objects’ history. The application may be useful for foreign guests of the city as it is developed in several European languages.

Historian Valentin Starostin and IT developer Mikhail Dyomshin are going to organize a special tour to familiarize the journalists with the selected objects and the principle of the QR-Guide operation. After the tour, the project participants are going to talk about the features of the QR-guide project, their contribution to its implementation and future plans.

Participants of the event: Wolfgang Mösinger (General Consul of the Federal Republic of Germany in Donetsk with a temporary office in Dnipro), Boris Filatov (Dnipro mayor), Iryna Polikarchuk (the ArtSvit Gallery director), Mikhail Dyomshin (author and developer of the MoreInfo IT application), Valentin Starostin (historian, Dnipro Development Agency).

Buy Art to Support Ukraine. Purchase of an ambulance
In the spring, together with Dnipro Center for Contemporary Culture, we launched the Buy Art to Support Ukraine initiative — a charity sale of graphics by Ukrainian artists of the 20th century.
With the proceeds from the sale, we managed to buy an ambulance and bring it from Germany to Dnipro. Yesterday the car was delivered to the medics. Thank you to everyone who has joined the initiative. You have made an important contribution to the rescue of our military — most of the wounded are being transported to Dnipro from the front line, and medical workers need more and more equipment and cars.

We are raising funds for our temporary hub
