Workshops of Culture are joining #LightforBelarus
Belarus celebrates its independence anniversary on 25 March. This day, Belarus commemorates an unofficial event that is not recognized by Alexander Lukashenko’s regime, but which is kept alive by Belarusian society, particularly the democratic opposition. With a commitment of solidarity to our Belarusian neighbours, who have been fighting for their democratic rights since last August, Workshops of Culture are joining the nationwide campaign #LightForBelarus.
For many years, Workshops of Culture have supported and promoted Belarusian culture, for instance, at festivals. On 25 March, visit our Facebook channels, where you will be able to watch concerts by Belarusian artists performing at East of Culture – Different Sounds, and listen to audio dramas and excerpts of Belarusian prose (performed, among others, by Jarosław Zoń and actors from Lublin). Moreover, Kultura Enter will feature articles about the most recent Belarusian poetry from 2020 seen in the light of civil protests and Galina Grabarczuk’s report on the situation in Brest. Courtesy of Wschodni Express Studio, you will also watch an interview with Belarusian writers and a film about the beginnings of the persecution of Belarusian opposition members. We will recall the special issue of Kultura Enter: “Solidarnie z Białorusią” / “Solidarity with Belarus”.
In honour of the Belarusian Freedom Day and the #LightForBelarus campaign, we are offering a 40% discount on books by Belarusian authors published in the Wschodni Express series.
