Likhachev Foundation ---a 2-week fellowship in St. Petersburg in May 2013

Dear Friends and Colleagues, I am pleased to inform you that the

Likhachev Foundation accepts applications for a 2-week fellowship in St. Petersburg in May 2013. The name of the program is Cultural Fellowships in Russia and its purpose is to bring to St. Petersburg professionals who are currently working on projects about Russian culture (books, exhibitions, theatre productions, films, festivals, conferences, etc.) . You can learn about the program and its participants here: The announcement says that applications are accepted from American and European professionals in the field of arts and culture, however, the Foundation will be glad to consider interesting applications from Canada and Australia, too. The fellowship will take place in St. Petersburg in May 13 - 26, 2013.

The deadline for submitted applications is February 1, 2013, so there is plenty of time to come up with a groundbreaking project related to Russia and especially St. Petersburg! The Likhachev Foundation has already brought to St. Petersburg five groups of wonderful professionals from the US and EU, including scholars, writers, cultural preservationists, playwrights, directors, and composers. If you have a Russia-related project in mind or know someone who has, please pass this information along. The Likhachev Foundation would like to express its gratitude to the Committee on External Relations of St. Petersburg and B. Yeltsin Presidential Center (Moscow, Russia) for their help and support. We look forward to seeing you or your colleagues in St. Petersburg. Best wishes, Anna Shulgat M. A., M.F.A.
