NOOSFERA - The Russian Federation

22 November 2016
Last week, the Education Support Foundation NOOSFERA held two events in celebration of the International Day for Tolerance:
  • Personalized master-class of the famous artist Andrey Bartenev with children-participants of the correctional program “Emotions.Movement.Intellect” and their parents. During the lesson children made vivid paintings using dripping technique—splashing paint onto paper: this technique helps to express feelings and emotions.
  • A festive concert “Golden Rule” at Moscow school No.480 named after V.V.Talalikhin. During the concert the children learned a lot about Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Artists performed traditional dances and songs of the peoples of the world on the scene, and schoolchildren read out parables matching each of the five religions. At the concert, pupils of primary and secondary school learned about the golden rule of morality–“Treat others, as you desire to be treated by them”, which is common both for five major religions of the world and for all people of the earth.
