24 September at 12-30 it will be The Youth Quest “Zhytomyr Eurotrip” within the urban cultural event “Zhytomy City Workshop”.
The Quest aimes to show Zhytomyr from another side, not from the hackneyed view but in the way of walking on foot or cycling. It will prove that Zhytomyr is an European city. NGO Modern Format aims to better inform the project participants of historical and cultural heritage of the city and promote walking and bike riding.
For a long time there is an unhealthy trend towards devaluation of historical and cultural importance of Zhytomyr. Mostly, this is due to the fact that Zhytomyr citizens often speak about our city in dismissive way, thus forming the image of the city in the minds of the people that have never been here. Instead of being proud of Zhytomyr and actively promote it, they prefer to call the city of Zhytomyr gray, boring and ugly. The reason for this is the total devaluation due to low level of citizens’ awareness about the history of the city, and they rarely pay attention to the positive aspects of Zhytomyr. This quest aims to show the historical and architectural monuments of Zhytomyr, by drawing parallels with the relevant monuments similar with European. During the quest, the story of the places to visit will be told in a humorous, easy for the perception form to participants. Quest participants will see Zhytomyr from the other side, not gray and dull but bright, graceful, proud and happy, while walking the streets on foot or by bike.
Zhytomyr is worth walking through it.
It is assumed that in the quest can participate 8-10 teams of 4 persons in each team.
