The opening of the photo exhibition "Belarusian View of Daugavpils", organized by the National Library of Belarus and the Republican Centre of National Cultures was held in the "Mobile" Gallery on November 22.

Ms Tatsiana Kuzminich, Deputy Director General of the National Library of Belarus, welcomed those present, recalled the warm relations of the library with Latvian colleagues and the Belarusian diaspora, and expressed her gratitude for cooperation in cultural and scientific projects.


Mr Aleksejs Vasiljevs, First Deputy Chairperson of Daugavpils City Council, spoke about the rich cultural life in Daugavpils and stressed that the exhibition illustrates the beauty and life of the city.

Mr Eduard Litvinovsky, a young photographer and author of the exhibition, spoke about the main idea of the exhibition, shared the background of its creation and highlighted its importance both for Belarusians in our country and Belarusians abroad.


Ms Zhanna Ramanouskaja, head of the Daugavpils Belarusian Cultural Centre "Uzdym", and Ms Elieanora Kliashchynskaja, Head of the Culture Department, thanked the organizers and handed out souvenirs from Latvia.

Ms Tatsiana Kuzminich hopes to continue cooperating closely and presented the Latvian side with a facsimile edition of the "Primer".

The exhibition "The Belarusian View of Daugavpils" offers views of the city and its surroundings, showcases the richness and diversity of the Belarusian national costume, and presents Latvian Belarusians in their national costumes against the background of urban and suburban landscapes at different times of the year.

The exhibition encourages dialogue between the artist and the viewer: it is about cultural memory and the careful preservation of traditions that are necessary and meaningful for their bearers.

The event was held within the framework of the creative training for the leaders of foreign Belarusian non-professional artistic groups and chairpersons of public associations of Belarusians living abroad in the Republic of Belarus, organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Belarus.

The exhibition will run through November 28, 2021 in the Mobile gallery (3rd floor).
The end date is subject to change.

The opening hours of the exhibition correspond to the library’s opening hours.
Admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.
