On 8 and 9, February the first Ural Regional Forum “CULTURALICA” will be held in “Ural” Culture Centre. Its initiators are Culture Department of Ekaterinburg City Administration with support of the Government and Ministry for Culture of Sverdlovsk Region. CULTURALICA flows organically from a Congress of event-specialists which was held in “Ural” Culture Centre for several years.
The forum will be held for two days. In the course of the first day a theoretical part is planned with abstracts and publications, change of experience, discussions of world trends, large-scale projects and ways of its realization as well as strengths and weaknesses of cultural sphere. In the course of the second day the project’s participants under the supervision of mentors will have to develop four cultural cases – a festival, a museum, an educational and an urbanistic ones. These cases will be held at four city venues: Museum of Fine Arts (5, Voyevodina Street), Presidential Center of Boris Yeltsin (3, Boris Yeltsin Street), Dom Pechati Loft (49, Lenina Street) and Museum of Architecture and Design (4a, Gorkogo Street). Public case presentation will be its culmination.
Practicing and successful cultural professionals, public authorities of regional, federal and international levels as well as business leaders are invited to CULTURALICA as speakers. Among forum experts are representatives of the leading Russian and international projects: VDNKh (Exhibition of Economic Achievements), “Skolkovo” innovational center, Charity Fund of V.Potanin, modern art museum “Garage”, as well as directors of theaters, museums, art historians, art critics, experts in the sphere of event management, music and theatrical managers.
CULTURALICA forum aims to become a laboratory of cultural initiatives – a place where ideas will be born, technologies are tried out and new projects are commenced. Within CULTURALICA framework organizers plan to start a creativity competition with the main prize – a grant for project implementation in the sphere of culture. As a result of grant introduction, organizers affirm, the change of attitude to culture financing can begin giving space for better investments. There’s already an emerging trend.
