In connection with prevention from the spread of the coronavirus infection, cultural institutions of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug are temporarily closed for visitors, but offer a lot of interesting things for online leisure and communication.
The main museum of Yamal presents work of young specialists in museum management, exhibition reviews, digitized collections, online lessons and lectures, joint projects of the Museum and TV companies — all in the section “Media” (http://mvk.yanao.ru/posetitelyam/media/) on the official website of the Museum and Exhibition Complex of I. S. Shemanovskiy.
Is it real that Lenin was in Yamal? This “fact” was once described by the writer and artist Ivan Istomin. On the cultural and educational portal “Subject conversation” (https://portmvk.yanao.ru/) it is possible to find out how it was in real. There are a lot of things that are beyond of usual expositions: museum apocrypha and legends of museum items. The online art gallery deserves a separate study.
In the past cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes and currants were grown on the Polar Circle at the Museum in Salekhard! In the 1950-s Dmitry Chubynin, a meteorologist and an enthusiast plant grower, worked closely with the Museum. Even more amazing facts can be found in the special project on the portal of Culture of the Russian Federation “Eternal guardian” (https://www.culture.ru/s/mvk_yamal/) prepared for the 110th anniversary of the Museum of Ivan Shemanovskiy.
The regional center for national cultures invites viewers to hear and see performances of creative collectives of the region in live broadcast, as well as to ask questions to performers in the project “Musical dialogue” (https://ocnk89.ru/proekty/on-line/963-music-dialog). The live broadcasts will take place on the official website of the institution in April. In addition, there is an opportunity to travel through fascinating and instructive, funny and unsophisticated, joyful and wise folk fairy-tales in the folklore project “Peoples of the North” (https://ocnk89.ru/proekty/on-line/965-skazki-yamal).
The broadcast of archive recordings of performances of the people’s theater-studio “Kamorka”, in which the dialogue with the director Irina Fateyeva will take place, is available in the project “Theatrical challenge” (https://ocnk89.ru/proekty/on-line/964-teatr-vizov). The next shows will be held on the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th of April.
Art-works by Ivan Istomin, the founder of Yamal literature, are also available in the author’s reading (http://istomin.yanao.ru/slushat/).
In addition, one of the top educational online resources in Russia, Arzamas.academy, will help rediscover the arctic region. The professional and creative team of the project presents the course “Discovering Russia” (https://arzamas.academy/courses/71) containing 5 video lectures and 5 additional materials about Yamal.
There are main exhibitions of Russia in 2020 and other interesting information on the portal of cultural heritage and traditions of peoples of Russia https://www.culture.ru/. Here there are films, recordings of theater productions, concerts and lectures.
Additional information about current projects being implemented by cultural institutions in the online format can be found on the portal “Culture of Yamal” (https://культураямала.рф/).
As it should be noted, on the official website of the Cultural and Business Center it is possible to find online concerts of soloists and collectives of the center that will decorate leisure time and charge with positive emotions.
