Culture is stronger than dictatorships. It is the engine of changes. And it deserves world attention!
Belarusian Council for Culture, together with the Office of Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, National Anti-crisis Management and the Coordination Council call on the world community to celebrate the International Day of Belarusian Culture on the 7th of July
Events will be organised all around the world during the whole week, from 5 till 11 of July. You, too, can participate and contribute!
Despite a vivid possibility of repressions, there are artists, who openly state their civic position. They inspire and support the spirit of change and hope among Belarusians. We organize concerts and theatrical shows in Belarus and abroad, produce an online show for children, make documentaries and music videos. You, too, can support the artists.
Supporting repressed artists
We provide direct targeted financial support to the artists and their families, who have experienced repressions.
Counteracting state propaganda
We conduct awareness campaigns among international partners of the state TV channels, who air the recordings of tortures of political prisoners, and spread fake news, meant to discredit the civil society. Among them — a successful #stopBTRC campaign, aimed to block the participation of a Belarusian band, assigned by the state to perform a song, mocking the protests, at the Eurovision contest
Developing a set of reforms
Together with the most outstanding cultural managers, we are preparing a set of reforms and a roadmap for them to be implemented in the new Belarus to stimulate and support the country’s cultural development.
Artists and cultural activists are behind bars on political grounds at the moment.
Artists and cultural activists have been going through repressions since the 2020 elections. We monitor every case of terror.
Artists, repressed for standing up against violence in Belarus, received our targeted support.
People have been repressed by the Lukashenka regime since August 2020
Belarusian Council for Culture is a union of art managers, cultural activists, painters, musicians, poets and all other kinds of artists, creating a progressive cultural policy in Belarus, without terror and repressions.
