In 2016, Piotr went to the Avdiivka FM Festival to take part in the theatrical part, but decided to shoot a video about the history of the People’s Museum of Avdiivka. It was one of the locations of the festival, which was almost completely destroyed during the war, but later restored on initiative of locals.
