“Media Pysanka”


The World Executive of the Ukrainian Youth Association has proposed for CYM branches to carry out an idea called “Media Pysanka”.

The scope involves inviting to your house people from mass-media organisations so that with them, and for them, you can teach how to prepare and decorate Easter eggs in the Ukrainian tradition. The aim would be for this to take place in all areas where CYM exists.

It is hoped that such an idea can become a tradition and help a range of people to better recognise and interact with Ukrainian traditions and customs.

A similar idea has been taking place in Geelong where CYM Geelong along with Hromada run an event called “Pysanky on Pako”. Taking place in the Ukrainian Hall, this is attended by many people where they learn how to create Ukrainian pysanky.
