In order for society to be ready to respond to the current changing circumstances caused by Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine, the Latvian Center for Contemporary Art (LCCA) in cooperation with the Pauls Stradins Medicine history museum (MVM) and experts from different fields started a creative and inclusive cycle of activities. The main goal of it is to inform the public about the patterns of action in emergencies that could potentially lead to the threat of war. Within the framework of these activities, first aid and civil protection courses will be held for everyone interested in order to inform the public about the action plan for the so-called X Hour. Thus, anyone who attends these courses will be able to be a kind of ambassador in their home, apartment house, staircase or even yard. In addition, the artists of the comic magazine "Kuš" will get acquainted with the first aid visual materials that are in MVM's collection created in different decades, and draw an action plan in comic format. It is planned to print this comic as posters and stickers and distribute them in the districts of Riga, thus informing a wider and more diverse group of the society.

In close collaboration with Latvian Transatlantic Organization LATO, artists and creatives from different fields will be invited to participate in discussion, dedicated to the ways how art can be a tool to make conversation with people with opposite opinions and how to reach the Russian - speaking community in Riga and regions.
