The contest was held for organizations that had a success realizing the winning projects of the 2014 all-Russian contest “The Cultural Mosaic of Small Towns and Villages.”
As Elena Efremova, scientific secretary of the Penza Savitsky Picture Gallery, informed PenzaNews agency, the contest project in 2015 received the title “Then You Read Just the Right Books When You Were a Child!”
“At its heart is the exposition of original illustrations for children’s works from the collections of the Penza Picture Gallery. Based on the exposition, there will be a big costume festival of literature, one that teaches and engages. The festival will be followed by a workshop ‘What’s Else Is There In Books, Beside the Letters?’ during which we and the children will create a book illustration,” the speaker said.
She noted that as a part of the project, the gallery creative team is to make seven trips to specialized schools of the Nizhny Lomov, Mokshan and Kamenka areas, in Neverkino, Serdobsk, as well as social rehabilitation center for minors in Chaadaevka village, the Gorodishchensky area.
According to Elena Efremova, the Timchenko Foundation provided 96,700 rubles for the project.
