Ukranian student discussing photos with audience

We would like to cordially invite you to an exhibition by Ukrainian students “War in life, life in war” hosted by Science Museums and Galleries from the Faculty of Science. On Wednesday, October 5th from 12:30-1:30 pm, Ukrainian students will attend the exhibit in the STC atrium to tell us stories about the resilience and resistance of Ukrainian people, show pictures from their hometowns and home universities, and share their first-hand experiences with the war being waged on their country by Russia. Coffee and Ukranian treats will be provided.The exhibition provides a unique perspective and eye-witness account of the war in Ukraine from Ukrainian students, who had to flee the war and are now hosted at the University of Waterloo. It is currently displayed in the Science Teaching Complex's rear atrium, near B1.

Join in for this unique perspective from fellow academics and partake in discussions over coffee and authentic Ukrainian dishes at the event.

The exhibition is organized by the Ukrainian student community at UW and University for Ukraine (#U4U) Fundraising. U4U is a humanitarian grassroots fundraising initiative by students, staff, and faculty from the University of Waterloo aimed to show our solidarity and provide relief for the victims of the war in Ukraine through major Canadian charities.
