Students invited to show their talent
Art-Vacation Youth Artistic Creativity Festival, held since 2003, remains popular
The project has moved with the times, retaining its appeal with the younger generation. This time, the event united 53 universities, showcasing song, dance, circus mastery, literary creativity, photography, painting, film-making, and stand-up comedy.
Tatiana Grishkevich, of the National Centre of Child and Youth Artistic Creativity, headed the jury, noting that Art-Vacation is a unique project within the post-Soviet space. As a rule, focus is on festivals of singing or dancing in neighbouring states. She underlines, “Our forum presents all manner of creativity, as a multi-faceted event. Entrants first compete at their universities, then at regional level and then attend finals, held at Minsk’s Sports Palace on May 14th. We now have interactive performances, including Internet voting for the best entrants, allowing colleagues from other universities to assess levels of mastery.”
Students from several universities, in Minsk, Mogilev and the Belarusian State Agricultural Academy in Gorki, have already demonstrated their mastery. Now, Gomel is hosting its Art-Vacation.
