The Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) and Nepal-Russia Arts Club presented “Winter Arts Exhibition” at the RCSC premises. The exhibition is the consequence of RCSC’s goal to encourage the creativity of Nepalese artists and to promote their talents.
Development of arts and culture projects the prosperity of a country. Russia and Nepal are very rich in their cultural heritages. The RCSC has been taking initiatives to promote arts and culture of Russia and Nepal since its establishment in Nepal.
The Exhibition is organized to celebrate the year 2014 as the Year of Culture in Russia as well as the celebration of the 250th anniversary of Hermitage State Museum of Russia. The collection of the State Hermitage includes more than three million works of art and artifacts of the world culture. Among them are paintings, graphic works, sculptures and works of applied art, archaeological finds and numismatic material.
According to a press release of the Russian Centre of Science and Culture, Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree declaring 2014 as the Year of Culture in the Russian Federation. The objective of making 2014 the year of culture is to attract the society's attention to the problems of culture development, preservation of cultural-historical heritage and the role of Russian culture in the world.
The plan involves various cultural and educational events across the country, as well as projects in theatre, music, contemporary art, artistic heritage and cinema; nationwide and international ethnic culture festivals; and events aimed at preserving and promoting traditional folk cultures and practices of Russia’s various ethnic communities, discovering young talents and supporting children’s creative endeavors, expanding exhibition activities, and realizing creative projects in the regions of the Russian Federation.
Learning about the Russian culture is an excellent way to improve your Russian and understand Russian-speaking people. Russian culture has a rich history, strong traditions and influential arts, especially when it comes to literature, philosophy, classical music, ballet, architecture, painting, cinema and animation.
In the year 2014 the RCSC is planning to organize various events to celebrate the year and to honor various Russian poets and writers, artists and composers, cult figures and other outstanding contributors to the world culture and all those who have contributed in the promotion of Russian culture and language.
This exhibition is one of those events planned for the year 2014.
