The project is one of the winners in “Small towns – great impressions” competition, that got financial resources on its realization (158 applications from all over Ukraine and only 8 winners).
Tatar tower is one of the three barbicans (a type of defensive structure), that still remain in Ukraine. It was built in the 16th century and in the 19th century was partially destroyed. Within the “Art Barbican” project surrounding area of the tower will be beautified and the Barbican will be preserved to prevent its further destruction. Also, scene and installation will be placed to demonstrate the profile of the tower, as it was before its destruction. The goal of the project is to prevent further destruction of the architectural monument and to attract tourists to the object that was never a part of tourist route of the town.
