Yekaterinburg to showcase city's cultural achievements during Year of Culture
As one of the largest cultural centers in Russia, Yekaterinburg's administration has agreed to move forward with a plan to sponsor hundreds of educational, literary, artistic and theatrical events during the year. The program will also allow the city to commission original works of art and music from local artists, Ekburg.ru reports.
Approved by the Federal Assembly of Russia late last year, Vladimir Putin's Year of Culture program was designed to enhance Russia's visibility as a global artistic and cultural destination. The implementation of the program has required the nation-wide involvement of legislators, cultural experts and law enforcement professionals.
