Free Festival "Anton is Near Here" in New Holland
August 24, 2016 17:58

The center for assisting autists "Anton is Near Here" will hold its own charitable festival on the Island of New Holland, Leningrad Region on September 3.
Denis Ryabov and Sergey Kamenskikh from the Sincere Music association will play DJ sets on the main stage of the island in the first half of the day. The bands Sirotkin and Strange Games, as well as Optimystica Orchestra and the orchestra Anton is Near Here will perform in the evening. The critic and editor-in-chief of the Afisha magazine Yury Saprykin will supervise the music program, and Alexander Malich will be the host of the event.
In the afternoon speakers of the Arzamas project will tell about culture through short stories on love. In the evening a silent movie theater will demonstrate the film Crazy Family Shorts and animation masterpieces of Oscar Shorts 2015 and 2016. The silent film marathon will be finished with Boris Barnet's film The Girl with a Box (1927) accompanied with music improvisations by the avant-garde contrabass player Vladimir Volkov, a member of the legendary Russian rock band Auktsyon.
The Creative Manufactory P.T.H. will create a kinetic installation, which the festival visitors will have a chance to develop and enrich. Tournaments on board games will take place in the game store of GaGaGames. The Moscow project Playtronica  will make vegetables sing and teach all comers to play the pumpkin percussions, cucumber keyboards and perform eggplant solos.
Moreover, visitors will be introduced to the creativity of the Center's wards. Viewers will be offered to distinguish works by recognized artists from those by students of the centre Anton is Near Here. Besides, everyone will be able to create charms, figurines, and cards at workshops here — all master classes will be based on the images created by students of the Center.
A pétanque tournament and a morning yoga class will be also held at the charity festival. A photozone and the reading room Word Order will be available too.
A separate program will be prepared for children: they will listen to informative lectures in a scientific lecture hall, carry out experiments and participate in art workshops. The University of Children project will arrange Scientific Inquiry, where real scientists will give answers to children's questions.
Admission to the festival is free as well as participation in all the activities. It should be noted that all participants of the open-air festival Anton is Near Here support the project free of charge, whereas visitors' donations will be allotted to developing the Centre's programs.
