Although the pandemic has significantly affected the work of all cultural centers in Daugavpils, and they are closed to the public, nevertheless, these institutions continue to operate. The centers carry out inventories, minor repairs, research work and organize various events online.

The Center of Belarusian Culture has recently published a culinary book “Kirmashoskii prysmaki”, which contains three dozen recipes for popular dishes of national cuisine among the Belarusians of Latvia. The collection is published in Belarusian. The presentation of this book with tasting is scheduled for September 2021, when the festival “Belarusian Kirmash in Daugavpils” is to take place.

At the end of this week, the Center for Belarusian Culture held the II International Conference “Belarusian Readings”, which was attended by scientists and researchers from Latvia and Belarus, as well as representatives of Belarusians abroad. The event was timed to coincide with the International Mother Language Day and was held on the Zoom platform. More information on the website Center

The center of Polish culture was not stopped by the pandemic either – it is active. Having our own video studio allows organizing various online events and demonstrating the work currently being carried out at the Polish House.

On the official page Center for Polish Culture you can see the new exhibition of Ilona Linarte-Ruji “Kadr”, get acquainted with the tradition of the Launches holiday and an unusual study in honor of Valentine’s Day with love stories of different young people.

Currently, active preparations are underway here for the online competition of Polish and Latvian pop songs, which will be held from March 1 to March 15. To sing two songs – in Polish and Latvian, representatives of all ages are invited. The Center for Polish Culture is also preparing for the May patriotic holidays, hoping for relief from restrictions due to Covid-19.

Employees of the Center for Russian Culture are now busy with digitizing archival video recordings, taking into account exhibits and creative work. The artist Petr Khudobchenok continues to study in the popular prints technique and, if possible, will demonstrate his new works. Russian House also holds remote contests, the last of which is the contest for young readers “I have no time for toys now …”, dedicated to Agnia Barto and brought together almost 140 participants. And already on March 3, on the World Writer’s Day, a reading marathon based on the works of Leonid Dobychin is planned. In parallel with this, the Center of Russian Culture is preparing an instructive mini-series about the upcoming Maslenitsa, which this year will be held without mass festivities, but under the sign of homemade pancakes and good wishes. Latest news of the center – on website.
