Soyuzivka, also known as Suzi-Q or The Q, is a Ukrainian cultural center located in the Town of Wawarsing, Ulster County, near Kerhonkson, New York in the Shawangunk Ridge area south of the Catskill Mountains in upstate New York. Soyuzivka hosts children's heritage camps, workshops, seminars, festivals, concerts, dance recitals and art exhibits for those interested in learning about Ukraine and its culture.Soyuzivka's mission is to promote, preserve and propagate Ukrainian culture. It seeks, with its programs, to instill pride in Ukrainian heritage among Ukrainian-American youth and to showcase Ukrainian culture to an American audience.HistoryIn 1952, The Ukrainian National Association, a fraternal organization established in 1894, purchased the property in response to the need of its growing Ukrainian community, for use as a cultural center for its members. Soyuzivka provided language workshops, heritage studies, festivals, concerts, dances, art exhibits and children's summer camps. It has been providing this service for over 50 years.Soyuzivka thrived under the leadership of Walter Kwas, a great supporter of the arts, who dedicated his entire life to bettering Soyuzivka, and was the person responsible for inviting fine artists, musicians and dancers to exhibit, hold recitals and workshops at the resort during the summer months and during the holidays.Kwas modeled the resort after the architecture of the Carpathian mountains, with the famous woodcarver, Cherniovsky embellishing the individual buildings that made up the premises. Each of these buildings were named after regions in Ukraine.
