The "ARTDROME" project is aimed at transformation of the space of the industrial city of Luhansk. It is based on the novel of Ukrainian author Serhiy Zhadan "Voroshylovhrad" (2010). As a part of the project, Polish artists Magdalena Ptak and Artur Wabik will create a comic strip based on the "Voroshylovhrad" novel in order to present it in Luhansk. During the festival Polish and Ukrainian experts will hold master classes in comic strip creation and performance conducting for the youth of Donbass, and young Ukrainian artists will try to transfer parts of the comic strip to the walls and fences of the city in the form of graffiti.
