Lastivka Teplyi Market
Lasts 14.11.2022 - 31.12.2022
34 400 UAH
The idea of the market arose out of necessity. The Lastivka community is an initiative group of women who, due to the Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, were forced to leave their cities, became new residents in the Ivano-Frankivsk community and have been living here for 6-7 months. The organisers of the market felt the need of many people who had recently came to Ivano-Frankivsk – to arrange their new homes, the need for inexpensive things and the need to create comfort at home. So, in August, the idea of holding the Lastivka garage sale emerged, and already in September, the first two garage sales took place at Promprylad (2 and 17 September ). At the first two garage sales, the idea of reusing and giving new life to things, clothes, dishes, anything that can be useful to other people was actively promoted. Markets also increase participants’ sense of involvement in joint social actions, because they have a rule, which means that part of the funds from the sale of items goes to the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Accordingly, during the market event held on 2 September, UAH 35,090 was raised, and during the market event held on 17 September, UAH 42,000 was raised and donated to volunteers who help the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the purchase of motor vehicles.
The next one will be the “Teplyi Market”, as it is urgent to get ready for a difficult winter with limited power / gas supply and the risk of its being cut due to the threat to the critical infrastructure of Ukraine from the Russian Federation.
The Urban Space 100 funds will cover the costs of arranging the fair.
