Revolution of Dignity! (Kiev; Post-Soviet, Post-Revolution) is a group exhibition by photographers from across Europe, showcasing the events of Ukraine’s Maidan Revolution as they unfurled. The photographs capture the hope and community spirit, as well as the violence and loss that occurred after government-hired snipers open fired at protestors. Marking Maidan’s four-year anniversary, the exhibition invites the viewer to reflect on the period, and see how Kiev’s young activists are still keeping the movement going, several years on. The exhibition is in collaboration with UK organisation Faces in Focus, to raise money for the project GoCamp. An NGO funded volunteer program, GoCamp hosts educational camps for Ukrainian youth, in order to increase communication between Ukraine and the rest of Europe.

The exhibition will take place on the 22nd-23rd February at The Depot, 38 Upper Clapton Road, London E5 8BQ. Private view 22nd 6pm-10pm. 23rd open to public from 4pm-9.30pm.
