Learn + Participate

  • Borimir Totev

I launched and managed a new educational strand of public programming at Pushkin House. This ongoing series of courses, workshops and masterclasses in both English and Russian invites leading experts and creatives to provide the audience with a deep, multi-dimensional understanding of Russia.

Dr. Elisabeth Schimpfössl, author of 'Rich Russians: From Oligarchs to Bourgeoisie', leading the 'Russia of 2019' workshop. The session gave participnats a compact and versatile insight into contemporary Russian society. It covered an overview of politics, economics, demographics, media and civil society.
Theatre director, actor and teacer, Sinéad Rushe, at the end of 'The Chekhov Act' workshop, which focused on some of the key principles in the technique of renowned actor and director, Mikhail Chekhov.
I also produced a video series with the facilitators of each session to raise awareness and promote the Learn + Participate programme.

Here is a selection of the videos:
