«Russian House in Catalonia»
The association “Russian House in Catalonia” was established in 2010 and since then has managed to achieve great things. As a non-profit organization, the Association aims primarily to the expansion and strengthening of international cultural relations between Spain, Catalonia and Russia, the CIS and other countries.
To achieve this goal “Russian House in Catalonia” regularly organizes international forums, competitions, music, dance festivals and exhibitions featuring young talented artists from around the world. Enhancing relationship between people is a guarantee of cultural and artistic development of the countries.
An important part of the work of the Association is to spread and exchange information about Russian culture and traditions, which is conducted in several directions. First of all, it is the constant cooperation and establishment of contacts with cultural associations of Catalonia, Spain and Europe, regional media and the municipal administration. In addition, collaborations with Russian-speaking community organizations throughout Spain are created.
Secondly, it’s the attraction to cooperate with artistic groups from Russia, CIS countries, Europe and from around the world, as well as individual artists and musicians. Each new project is a chance to reveal the talent to change the destiny of one person or even of the whole team. An important aspect of the work of the Association is the close collaboration with the Embassies over joint cultural activities relating to the development and strengthening of national traditions.
At the same time the Association has been putting in the ground work. For example, the Russian information center is open to the public where you can get all the information about upcoming cultural events. The Russian library which was inaugurated within the Association has a thousand books in several languages. Furthermore, educational trips to Spain and Europe are organized and a unique «Museum of cats» was established.
The organization is engaged in activities of charity auctions involving Spanish, Catalan and Russian artists living in Spain. It should be emphasized that all the proceeds go to the creation of a unique cinematic Russian fund of fiction and documentary films in Spain, the replenishment of Russian library funds and the development of other art projects.
