Contest launched for Ukrainian revolution monument

  • Comment

The City of Kyiv has launched an open international contest for a memorial to the protestors who died during the recent uprisings in Ukraine

The monument to the ‘Heavenly Hundred Heroes’ will commemorate lives lost during the revolution at the start of this year which saw former president Viktor Yanukovych deposed.

According to the competition website: ‘Art and spatial design of the Memorial site should be worthy to commemorate the people who sacrificed their lives for the triumph of the ideals of equality, dignity, unity, freedom.’

The full competition brief will be distributed to registered participants in early December.

Both the Kyiv City State Administration and the Ukrainian Ministry of Culture are supporting the competition.

The uprising – known as the Revolution of Dignity – started in November 2013 after the Ukrainian government suspended the signing of a new treaty with the European Union.

Hundreds of Ukrainians were killed and many injured during demonstrations and strikes which followed.

The winning team – set to be announced in March – will receive around £8,000.

The deadline for applications is 30 November.
