In Ugra street art allows you to acquaint with the history of the region
In Surgut the economic capital of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug the project "Touching History" has been completed, which was implemented by the Ugra Intellectual Club for several months with the support of the Presidential Grants Fund. The project involved the creation of the region's longest art object "The Embankment of Life" on the city embankment, as well as an exhibition of children's drawings on the theme of local history.
“The aim of this initiative was to draw the attention of young people to the history of their hometown. Few people know how versatile and interesting it is. In addition to the art object, as part of the "Touching History" project, together with the Surgut State Pedagogical University, we recorded a series of lectures on the history of the city. They are published in the club's social networks. These lectures were shown to pupils of Surgut schools, ” said Olga Sidorova, head of the Intellectual Club.
The Embankment of Life project brought together not only people of different ages, but also several grant sites.
“Our projects are social, we use not only grant funds, but also use self-financing. We are ready to create and donate works for the benefit of the city, but we really want residents to take care of these objects. Since 2017, we have created more than 30 art objects not only in Surgut, but also in Surgut region, Nizhnevartovsk, Ishim," Olga Sidorova shared.
