Online museum “DNA of Ukrainian Embroidery of Avant-Garde” is a unique project with powerful educational features. It reveals little known page of Ukrainian art to wider public. The beginning of 20th century is the time of great creative experiments in all fields of art, as well as radical change of basic canons for visual art and settled traditions. The wave of change has also reached embroidery art, folk and traditional, and led to unexpected results. UN Global Compact has been promoting comparatively young idea of sustainable development. The idea relates to two basic notions – preservation and development, which can be applied to social sphere, as well as to economics and environment. For the preservation and development are the essential activities for cultural heritage undertaken by artistic communities during centuries. They have been protecting, preserving, actualizing, and retranslating cultural heritage from generation to generation. This is the very thing civil society activists, government officials, and business people can learn from artistic communities. Online Museum “DNA of Ukrainian Avant-Garde Embroidery“ is the best example of this phenomenon. Sustainability of the project is represented here not only with a bright idea. The museum exhibition includes items specifically made for people with sight loss. Precise copies of exhibits will be 3D-printed from recycled plastic and supplied with descriptive texts in Braille font. We are happy inclusiveness and environment friendly approaches have been gradually becoming common practices in the field of art and education .
