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.
