Foreign students in creative professions were trained in Russia

Foreign creative students took part in an international cultural project that brings together representatives of different countries and promotes cultural exchange through the training of young foreign artists and actors in leading Russian universities.

We are talking about "Innopraktika" and "Russian Seasons" schools where activities are carried out in two creative directions - artistic and theatrical sessions.

The first one was held in St. Petersburg and came to an end on October 16. The second session, which has just started, is held in Moscow together with the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts (GITIS).

The aim of the school is to reveal to young professionals the diversity of creative heritage of our country, and to form an objective view of art in Russia. The organizers expect that teaching foreigners at such a school will promote cultural exchange. Another aim of the programme is to popularise global values. At the end of their studies, students will produce works, which will accumulate elements of Russian and foreign culture.

Natalia Popova, the first deputy general director of Innopraktika, called the school a unique educational project that allows to expose our country and its original culture to foreign students through communication, education, practice and attend creative events.

According to her, 25 students from different countries participated in the 2020 sessions.

The first art session, which included trainings and lectures, was held in St. Petersburg at the Academy of Arts named after Repin. It was attended by young artists from Germany, Brazil, Italy, Spain, France and Syria. At the end of the course, the students presented their final works, including artworks, sculptures and installations.

Artistic programme at GITIS will end on October 30. Now the students from Great Britain, Brazil, Italy, the USA and other countries attend lectures, master classes and trainings in drama, directing and acting. The final work of their study will be a production based on the stories of Anton Chekhov.
