Russian center in Berlin actively collaborates with German educational institutions


The Russian Center in Berlin started May 2018 with a number of events and activities. The first one was an informational meeting devoted to the network of Lomonosov international schools. The Russian-German school is a Russian Center's long-term partner. School children participate in joint projects, the most recent one was dedicated to Kazemir Malevich, for instance. This time the school's director Alexander Otto talked about the bilingual concept of the school and its curriculum. The children's parents had a chance to find out more about the education system and the entering procedure. Besides, they learnt about the activities and events hosted by the Russian Center.  

A few days later the center  welcomed our colleagues from the Russian Center in Mainz. We talked about the activities they hold and discussed the possibilities of cooperation. 

Quite recently we arranged the fourth concert Children Play for children and accepted IMS international music school from Berlin. This year is the school's tenth anniversary. The school teaches in several languages. Mila Kuznetskaya, the director, told us about the school's concept and objectives as well as about IMS-Podium music program, which we hope to join. 

As a result we agreed to do two activities this autumn - a music contest and a Christmas concert for children. We'll also do a concert for young talents in the beginning of June.

Meet BRICS Art is an international project that brings together artists from Russia, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Their virtual exhibition was opened in January. In addition, the project participants will hold online discussions. For example, they will discuss how artists can participate in the design of the cities of the future for the BRICS countries. Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
