From 16 to 22 July 2018, Personages of Cardboardia gather at Kudykina Gora to open a laboratory for the researching the carnival traditions of Europe and Russia. What can be the basis of the customs of different cultures? How did the images of carnival heroes, familiar to everyone, arise? Why do they sooner or later unite all the peoples on Earth?
We are trying to find the answers to these questions and invite everyone, who is willing to help us in our research, at the on-site internship workshop "Made in Cardboardia".
The internship will take place in the natural park of wonders "Kudykina Gora", where on July 21 the festival "This is the carnival" would be held
For one day the park will turn into a united carnival space filled with music, parades, workshops, dance flash mobs, contests, theatrical productions and performances.
