During the meeting, the guests also visited the central art space of Zenko Foundation which is now hosting LOVE.Сontemporary, an exhibition of Ukrainian contemporary art. Presently Zenko Foundation art space is a unique contemporary art center in the Carpathians. In 2016, it became the first location where Kylym, a national project of young artists, was exhibited. In autumn of the same year, the art space welcomed the participants of the first international forum  Zenko Platform.

One of the strategic goals of the fund is contemporary art decentralization. And the art space located in the heart of the Carpathians helps to achieve it. Guests of Yaremche District Hoteliers Association board meeting and Canadian ambassador Roman Vaschuk were genuinely impressed with LOVE.Сontemporary exhibition. The meeting participants noted that such events provide a unique opportunity for many people to sample Ukrainian contemporary art.
