CIC Halifax: A Conversation on Ukraine

February 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm AST



Please join CIC Halifax and guest speaker Don Bowser for a conversation on Ukraine and his experiences working in the country.

Don has worked internationally as a senior expert in anti-corruption and democratic governance matters. Prior to the war, Don worked extensively in Ukraine on such matters. Since the war commenced he has returned to Ukraine on a number of occasions to provide support to relief efforts. As the first anniversary of the war approaches, we are excited to hear from Don about his experiences in the country.

We are also pleased to provide a screening except from “Ukraine: One Life at a Time” by Olesya Shyvikova and Ethan Neville. Stricken by the pain of war in her home country, a Ukrainian Canadian filmmaker sought solace telling the stories of lives it shattered. Meet families from Kyiv, Mariupol and Bucha, and the horrors they experienced on their journey to safety in Canada. With breathtaking scenic shots from pre-war Ukraine and exclusive footage of war-torn cities and towns, Ukraine: One Life At a Time provides a heart-wrenching view of the conflict.
