Digital museum 10 virtual halls of the museum form a holistic picture of life in times of Independence.
In addition to analytical materials, we were able to compile a unique photo archive. We looked for its photos in private collections and home albums. We attracted our acquaintances, addressed photographers, wrote about our project on social networks and spoke of it on the radio. The editorial mail received a large number of images. Unfortunately, we were technically unable to use them all. However, we are grateful to everyone who did not remain indifferent and joined the “X-Y-Z Ukraine. Habits. Tastes. Life.” project.
If you also want to join and leave your own photo memories in history after watching our material, you can do it in the "Open Hall” until the end of 2021, the anniversary year for Ukraine.
One can feel the breath of time in our Museums not only visually - audio podcasts of discussions with experts are presented in the “Round table" section.
There is also an audio guide in every hall of the museum for those who prefer to perceive audible information.
We applied the generational theory to understand how young people's views have changed over the past 30 years. This theory divides people into generations according to impact of historical events on their childhood and adolescence. Within the years of Ukraine's independence, three generations grew up: "X" ("Xs", an unknown generation) - born in 1964-1984; "Y" ("millennials", Next) - born in 1985-1999; "Z" ("zoomers", centenaries) - born in 2000 and younger. Key factors influencing the young person are the following ones: socio-cultural environment, economic situation, technological development, historical and political events.
Learn more about the generation theory in a podcast from the project's roundtable series.
We invite you to join us to realize the past, feel the changes and move into the future with valuable experience. Enjoy watching and listening!
