Folk costumes of the 19th century, workshops, a cappella singing by Nina Matvienko and famous guests - on November 14, the opening of a photo exhibition as part of the charity project "Щирі. Свята" was held at the Ivan Honchar Museum. Visitors are welcomed to explore traditional Ukrainian fashion captured in photos.

Щирі ("Sincere") is a charity project that takes place for the third time in Ukraine. In 2014, Domosphera shopping mall launched a charitable initiative - 15 celebrities dressed in traditional attire were photographed to popularize Ukrainian traditions. The project soon gained so much attention that the next year, guests and donors were offered calendars with photographs, where each photo represents a month of the year. In 2018, the theme of the calendar is "Holidays".
