#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. On Saturday, September 18, Norilsk will host the Sinai festival of Japanese culture for the first time. The event was organized within the framework of the Creative Industries Academy, which was opened last year at the Norilsk Development Agency.
The organizer of the festival, Svetlana Streltsova, told that the townspeople will be able to get acquainted with both traditional and modern Japan. In the traditional part of the festival guests will find a pottery workshop, sand painting, manga art, Japanese martial arts and, of course, a tea ceremony.
In the modern part of the festival Norilsk people will be able to taste traditional Japanese dishes, take photographs at the colorful installations and much more.
“My team has been preparing for the festival for about eight months. A rich and interesting program has been prepared. We already have plans for the next year: we can say that within the framework of the first festival we are building the city of Sinai, it will remain for next year, but we want to add interactions”, the interlocutor shared.
