Visual and Performing Arts Centre

«ART Corporation»

 Visual and Performing Arts Centre “ART Corporation” is a unique organization which is devoted to the realization of major cinematographic, theatrical, exhibition and educational projects. Among them are the International Theatre Forum “TEART”, Minsk International Film Festival “Listapad” and many others.

We cooperate with cultural organizations all around the world. This cooperation makes it possible not only to show innovative performances and films in Minsk, but also hold Q&A sessions with their creators and organize master classes of the best filmmakers and theatre professionals.

Our main goal is to modify Belarusian cultural space and introduce viewers to the best examples of the world and Belarusian art. That’s why the Belarus Open showcase is a major part of the “TEART” Forum program, National Competition plays an important role in the development of MIFF “Listapad” and our exhibitions include works by Leon Bakst, Chaim Soutine, Marc Chagall and many other Belarusians. We also distribute Belarusian films within the framework of the project “Listapad. Belarusian Collection” and produce performances by young Belarusian directors.
