In the Atrium of the City Hall in The Hague there is a Yellow Bench during the Exhibition Samchykivka-Art of the Embassy of Ukraine from June 21 to July 15, 2022. This Yellow Bench is from the Invictus Games The Hague. Invictus Games is an international sporting event for physically and/or mentally injured military personnel that took place in Zuiderpark in May 2022. Ukraine was one of the 20 participating countries, which was a very unique opportunity given the current situation.

The Yellow Bench is a movement stimulating human connection by facilitating meaningful conversations through programs around a simple yellow bench. From legacy to future fame. A yellow bench. A simple yellow bench. Because of its symbolic value. Because it facilitated wonderful conversations. The idea has been embraced worldwide.
