“Virtual LitMuseum” is a realistic 3D space for creating online exhibitions developed with the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation. A mighty team of Kharkiv IT specialists and visualizers, gathered by Oleksii Bulat, worked on creating the virtual platform.

Earlier, the annual “Reading on the Ladder” festival took place in the yard of the Kharkiv Literary Museum. This year, the event was dedicated to the writer Volodymyr Vakulenko, who was killed in occupied Izium in Kharkiv Oblast.
