Days of Slavic Writing and Culture
May 14, 2016 17:00

May 21, 22 and 24 will see traditional Days of Slavic Writing and Culture in the Yaroslavl Historical, Architectural and Art Memorial Estate. The festival program is sated with popular scientific lectures, meetings, master classes, exhibitions and interactive events.
Prominent Russian historian Prof. Igor Danilevsky, an expert in Old Russia,  will hold a popular scientific lecture in the Classics hall on Saturday, May 21.
Visitors of the memorial estate will have a chance to express themselves not only in the word, but in deed as well: all comers are welcomed to take part in the large-scale open-air project Drawing Cathedral Together. Students of art schools, professional artists and art amateurs will get together and draw the most ancient temple of Yaroslavl – the Transfiguration Cathedral, which celebrates its quincentenary this year. Plein-air drawings will be displayed at an exhibition in the Yaroslavl Memorial Estate, the exhibition turning into our common gift to the Cathedral for its jubilee.
May 22 will see the presentation of the Yaroslavl writing school and tutorial center Azbukivedi. The program will include a film on calligraphy art and demonstration lessons of calligraphy for children and adults. The exposition Tale of Igor's Campaign will be accompanied with an interactive story about the dawn of writing.
One of cozy avenues in the memorial estate will turn into an improvised library under the name Reading Avenue. It will result from bookcrossing. Bookcrossing participants, who have brought more than five books will be handed free entry tickets to the local belfry, and those who have provided over 20 books will get a complex ticket to several museum expositions.
Participants of the interactive game The Birth of Book will also go to an improvised travel in time: players of the  intellectual quest should find answers to various questions about writing, reading, and literature – the answers are harboured among exhibits of several museum expositions.
On May 24 all Slavic countries glorify the creators of Slavic writing, Cyril and Methodius, who are titled "the apostles of the Slavs". The Yaroslavl Memorial Estate will start this day with a morning liturgy in the Transfiguration Cathedral, and The Singing Word concert that traditionally brings together lots of choruses of Yaroslavl.
The festival will take place in the  Yaroslavl Historical, Architectural and Art Memorial Estate at the address: 25, Bogoyavlenskaya Square, Yaroslavl.
