Flying University

The event schedule of the Week of Belarusan Thinking, which will be held from 19-25 September, has been formed!

Dozens of different events across the country will unite Belarusans, for whom thinking is an absolute value. And it's not just philosophers and thinkers — the organizers emphasize that by thinking they mean not only professional identity, but above all the ability to speak freely, consciously and reasonably.

A number of civil society institutions and educational institutions have united by the idea of ​​ Belarusan thinking as a part of our identity and self-understanding of the nation. At the end of May 2015 a joint cultural project Quote Your Own! was launched, which served as the start of the Year of Belarusan thinking. Bright events of the year widely and publicly represent the intellectual achievements of Belarus and promote them in contemporary culture.

The initiative Quote Your Own! continued with the publication of the book and the creation of original design T-shirts; the Anthology of Belarusan thinking “The Code of Presence” has been published and presented; a series of public lectures and discussions “Heritage of Ihnat Abdziralavich” took place, and an essay contest was announced. The results of the competition and the awards ceremony will be held on September 25, marking the final event of the Week.

Thus, the Week of Belarusan Thinking, which will take place in Belarus from 19-25 September, aims at summing up the results of the Year and presenting the diversity of forms and manifestations of Belarusan thinking in the modern Belarusan society.
