“The Hero in You” is an impact art project born in 2022 at the “Avondvrede” shelter in Bergen op Zoom, serving displaced Ukrainians. Led by artist Annemarieke van Peppen, this initiative brought together talented individuals such as Natalia Kasyanenka, Oleksandr Pinchuk, Vasyl Ramishvili, and Valentyna Sheremetieva.
Through an immersive exhibition, a book, a documentary, and a mesmerizing mirror installation, the project highlights the experiences of Ukrainian refugees and the Dutch volunteers who aided them during the war. It aims to inspire, provoke introspection, and evoke empathy. This project serves as a reminder that heroes exist everywhere, even in the most unexpected places, and invites you to explore the hero within yourself.

The first Hero in You-event was held at Bruijs Jachtbouw in Bergen op Zoom in 2022. This unique and raw venue fitted the project perfectly. Many visitors witnessed the flag parade, live performances of Ukrainian artists, the vast exhibition and the moving documentary.
