... the work is fabulous!  I only wish we could keep it longer. A wonderful way to communicate across the invisible borders that serve to divide us if we allow it.  So very many of our patrons have commented and spent time studying the pieces... I must reiterate “stopping to study, reflect and comment on the work”... which is unusual.  Often people breeze by art work, not this time.  It is refreshing to see and your budding artists and their instructors would be pleased with the reaction to their artwork.
 
With heartfelt thanks to all involved – instructors, students, administrators, etc... in making this exhibit possible,

Comments from the Fermata Arts Foundation:

To: Christy Menard
      Library Director
      Conant Public Library
      111 Main St.
      Winchester, New Hampshire 03470

Letter: FAF- 031816-021
Date:   March 18, 2016

Re: A second vision: country Ukraine - Kievan Rus
      Withdrawal of Putin's forces from Syria gives an opportunity to Poroshenko to 
transfer          their military operations against Putin to Syria


Dear Ms. Menard:

From the experience of American communications with the countries of the post-soviet space (cf. John Reed and the USSR) one can notice that US institutions are able to initiate the process and to wind it down in the span of sometimes one day, or, at most, of one month.

Your wish to communicate directly with libraries / schools / students in Ukraine is within your rights, as much protected by the constitution as your right to vote.

And yet in the period from 2011 - when the first drawings from the countries of post-Soviet space were provided to you by FAF - to the present time you have not exercised that right in any practical form - which would have meant posting the information about the exhibitions on the web site of your library - so that every participating child could enter the web site and see it.

But such links are rapidly destroyed.

Therefore, a non-profit organization that has a web site demonstrating the effects of traveling exhibitions provides an opportunity, based on the statistical data stored in the operational process of the "child - library, library - child” communication, minute by minute, regardless of the participant’s situation or mood.

Example: the Winchester Elementary School has refused to accept the exhibition. But other schools have supported the process of making a school exhibition.

A traveling exhibition of children's drawings is an initial stage in the creation of the Investment and Cultural Club (ICC) - see letter of support from Senator K. Witkos an Senator J. Lieberman

The library in Windsor, CT made a re-application which was not in the spirit of our understanding - "we only serve the citizens".

The right of American citizens for expressing their views is not served by a forceful process of "do as I do", but a process of cultural development of each individual with an access to an inter-cultural dialogue.

The network of American libraries is a network of independent libraries of the USA. ICC formation can only start from independent participants, individuals not depend on the mood of their neighbor.

Presidential structures of the USA embody a history of independent individuals acting within the framework of the constitution that has enabled these individuals to express their concepts both at the individual and societal level. America cannot survive without a president. Examples of countries trying to express themselves without presidential structures are Russia and the countries of the post-Soviet space. The loss of these countries’ culture at the time of the collapse occurred simultaneously with the process of losing the ruler of the country.

This comment will be placed on the Fermata Arts Foundation (FAF) website for Ukraine as the epigraph for children's drawings in the development of ICC and apropos correction processes in the development of tolerance.

Contact with the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine will be made in one form or another (wrt the formation of the laws in Ukraine).

The address for a direct contact that you have requested:
    Elena Stepanovna Filanchuk
    Director
    City Children's Library
            36 Otto Brozovsky St.
            Krivoy Rog, Ukraine
            E-mail: knopka-aknela@mail.ru

The language for communication: Ukrainian in Ukraine,
Georgian in Georgia, Armenian in Armenia, etc.

Good luck.

Libraries are not a reliable structure; the ICC, an abandoned building and an architectural student project - this is a form that will be more responsible for the task ahead, as there is a process of addressing the government: the lawmaking process is involved and an introduction to the country's constitution.

The FAF website is an international web site, and each child (in the countries of the post-Soviet space) can go and see his or her drawing. They have neither the money nor the capacity to do so at present.

Putin has managed to break up Ukraine into 459 independent urban centers.
Your direct contact would support such policies of President Putin.

You are using your right to vote (according to the constitution of the USA) in that country to form the concept of a touching love for the USA, not backed up by the finances of the country. Developing a computer dialogue via Skype, is an attempt to form a nobility class in the country. Constitutionally, the concept of "love for America" is in no way reflected in the constitution of this country, which leads to what has happened today.

Such Skype is a patronizing fiction. It's like visiting a prisoner in jail when you know that at any time you can get up and leave.
