On July 5, the National Library hosted the opening of the Belarusian-Russian exhibition project "Beauty and Traditions of Folk Costume", dedicated to the Year of peace and creation in the Republic of Belarus and the Year of teacher and mentor in the Russian Federation.
The project presents 6 original traditional Belarusian costumes from different historical and ethnographic regions of the country and 30 folk costumes created by children from orphanages. These are images of Belarusian and Armenian folk costumes, as well as costumes of Khakass, Mordovia, Chuvash, Ustyuzha, Saratov, Arkhangelsk, Voronezh, Mari and other regions of Russia. Each exhibit is accompanied by a detailed description of the individuality and originality of the folk costume – from the type of fabric to the status designation.
The project will also feature a collection of 26 rag dolls in traditional costumes. Visitors will get acquainted with the details of folk costume, traditional jewelry and accessories.
Belarusian vytinanki and colourful thematic publications from the library's collection will complement the exposition.
The project was organized by the National Library of Belarus, the Mission Charitable Foundation (Moscow, Russian Federation), the Vitebsk Cultural Center, the Museum of Ancient Belarusian Culture of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
