UHEC's Virtual Programming Series

July 14, 2020

As New Jersey slowly reopens, we have been hard at work creating new virtual programming, with something for all!

Since hands on, in-person workshops had to be cancelled, and we don’t know when we’ll be able to meet in person, the Center’s Folk Arts Workshop Series will be online in the form of  virtual workshops, or presentations about folk arts. Follow our calendar of events as we schedule workshops in pysanky, embroidery, weaving, traditional bread making and even Petrykivka painting. 




Crafts for Kids with the UHEC is a Sunday afternoon series that will provide a hands-on opportunity for kids to learn about Ukrainian art, culture and history. These will be suitable for grade school children and participants will have a finished craft at the end of the workshop.





For all of you historians and genealogists, the Nashi Predky Ukrainian Family History Group will be hosting a monthly webinar series called Nashi Predky @Home. It will feature topics in Ukrainian history and genealogy. In addition, there will be "Virtual Office Hours", where you can get help with historical puzzles or mysterious documents. We'll discuss a few head-scratchers from your emails online.


Stories from Storage will appear on Mondays starting July 13. Each story will feature an artifact, document or object from the UHEC’s collections - either from the Patriarch Mstyslav Museum, or the archives. You’ll hear the object’s story, its significance and importance, and how it fits into history, culture, and the immigration experience. The first of these stories is a virtual tour of the exhibition Visual Music: the Art of Yukhym Mykhailiv. Visit Stories from Storage to view this and other content as they are posted.
