01.05.2022 – 16.05.2022

The Pro Arte- Munkács NGO, settles the X. Transcarpathian International Sculpture Symposium, which gives opportunity to sculptors from all over the world to introduce their art in western Ukraine.

Participate in the tender call can every artist who has enough experience to make their work in 14 days.

Theme: “Water”.

Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong. (Lao Tzu)

In Zakarpatya region there is more than 150 mineral water wells, and 8 thermal wells, which has great influence in the development of tourism.
