ANIMATORS FOR BELARUS

LONG LIVE BELARUS

Over 50 animators from 19 countries collaborated to support Belarusians in their peaceful protests for fair elections and freedom. The animators offered their interpretation of the recent events in Belarus, creating the animated chronicles of these dramatic events. The white-red-white flag is a historical symbol of Belarus and has become a symbol of peace, protest, and hope for the people of Belarus. The youngest animator who participated in the project is only 12 years old.
