Today is World Mental Health Day, so there is an opportunity to play a classical music concert in a psychiatric hospital for patients. This is not the first time we are doing some unique events in Lviv. But this one is special, because a lot of things have come together: an art, a voluntary union of community, professionals and authorities. We just shared the idea government, and response was impressive. I think this event will be held in the future too.
