As organizers of the event tell, the exhibition is aimed against discrimination of people on the grounds of disability, age, sex, place of residence, sexual orientation etc.
“Those categories of people that are one way or another discriminated in the society are very numerous. Those labels we hang on them and existing stereotypes don’t allow us be tolerant and understand each other. And we all wanted that the audience of the exhibition looked at people they used to see as different ones with different eyes and saw that they are the same,” tells Anastasiia Dryzhak, the coordinator of the exhibition.
