Before the war Closer was a cult Club and art space, now it is a volunteer centre
From the very beginning of the war, the Closer Club has become a real volunteer headquarter, where training in tactical medicine is held, camouflage nets are woven, and food is prepared for soldiers and people who need it.
In its time, Otel’ has been called an experimental space. And since its beginnings, a lot of experiments were indeed conducted, but what recently started has been the most dreadful to date — war. The space whose walls witnessed so much emotions and experiences was integrated into the defense of Kyiv and became a part of this indomitable gathering of human unity, in order to protect our right to exist, our right to live
From the very start of the resistance, volunteers have been doing Molotov cocktails within the premises of Otel’ for the defense of the city of Kyiv in the fight against the invaders. While getting visits from foreign journalists during breaks, Otel’ never stopped its activities in the fight, adding the use of all its available space and capacities to meet the volunteers’ needs, to provide warehouse organization and storage, to ensure the effective loading and unloading of products and merchandise to serve the needs of volunteers, of the territorial defense, and so on
During this time, debts have mounted for unpaid utility bills. Now, to further continue our advance on the road to victory, Otel’ needs your support. Together with the ticketing platform OTTRY we are releasing the sales of a limited number of tickets with which you will be able to visit any event that is held in the future. The tickets will be available in the form of QR codes in your inbox. This will allow the space to function further and bring our victory closer Bank account details are also available for helping directly
