2014 is the Year of Hospitality, and its first cultural events are primarily those timed to the Minsk Ice Hockey World Championship in May. Among them is a large scale exhibition of modern fine arts, which would showcase the best works of our Belarusian artists painted in recent years.
Another important holiday is the Cultural Capital of Belarus event, which is already a tradition. Grodno, one of Belarus’ oldest cities, takes this status in 2014.
The Republican Festival-Fair of Folk Crafts — Spring Bouquet — would definitely please lovers of folk applied arts. It is scheduled in Minsk for late 2014.
The Great Patriotic War History Museum will be opened to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Belarus’ liberation from fascists. Its exposition is expected to become a bright page in the country’s public-cultural life.
I’m convinced that the public will enjoy our traditional events: the Alexandriya Gathers Friends Festival, the 23rd International Slavianski Bazaar in the Vitebsk Festival of Arts and the 10th Republican Festival of National Cultures (which will widely present the cultural diversity of our Republic).
I guess the opening of the mansion-and-park complex in the village of Zalesie (Grodno Region, Smorgon District), once owned by composer Michał Kleofas Ogiński, whose 200th birthday is celebrated in 2015, will also become a landmark event.
Minsk will host the 6th Panorama International Festival of Theatre Art and the 3rd Republican National Theatre Award Contest. These festivals — which traditionally present pieces of the national and global theatrical art — are already a brand in the sphere of culture.
The International Listapad Film Festival will enjoy its traditional format, pleasing audiences with new works by global cinematographers, which reveal human spirituality and our daily joys and sorrows.
The Days of Belarusian Culture abroad and similar days of foreign states in Belarus are also worth mentioning since they, figuratively speaking, are precious pearls in the necklace of our cultural life.
