Crisis in Ukraine Blog


We find ourselves in a moment of crisis when Ukraine is under threat. The goal for the blog is to collate events, news, announcements and information at UVA surrounding the Crisis in Ukraine. We also want to hear from our global community and capture everyday stories of resilience.

To help you get started, here are some guidelines.


An entry is loosely called a post. You can contribute with your writing, poem, drawings, photos, a collection of images or make an audio or a video diary.

For written piece, we are looking for 600-700 words. You could write a post from your area of expertise, about global collaborations or your observations at this time.

For video and audio recording:

  1. Clean sound: Make sure the sound is clear
  2. Recording on your phone: Flip your phone to widescreen. Do NOT shoot in vertical.
  3. The audio and video diary should be at least 1-2 minutes long but not longer than 5 minutes.

PLAN IN ADVANCE -- While informal, casual and intimate is great, it would be better to think about your thoughts before you write your piece down, or record it.

Don’t be afraid to experiment – with your writing, images, and visuals.
