Yevheniya Vidishcheva is a 22 years old theatre director. She came to  Shchastia to share here experience with local school students.  Shchastia is a small industrial town at the Eastern part of Ukraine near the frontline. The new socio-cultural and educational project has started here. Young stage director and manager Yevheniya tells why this project is important and how it is implemented here.

“We really want to teach them what to do next. When I will be far away from this place, they will have the experience how to make any event – what materials they need, who are the important persons to talk to, how to record and so on. I see how talented they are, but they are not confident in their own   abilities. However, they really can do anything,” says Yevheniya.
