IV regional Kazakh art festival ‘Tugan Zher’ was held in Chesmensky district of Chelyabinsk region. It became a hallmark of the cultural life of the Southern Ural. This year, Chesma took the baton from Kartals. It was attended by representatives of the Kazakh diaspora of the 13 districts of the Chelyabinsk region and multinational guests from Kazakhstan.
Alexander SERKOV, HEAD OF CHESMENSKY DISTRICT, CHELYABINSK REGION, RUSSIA:
We are all representatives of different ethnic groups, but we are united in one thing: in friendship. Because we have nothing to claim from each other - we have one sun, one earth. I really want our children to be friends with each other. Kazakh culture has many good things we can learn from - respect for seniors, honor for your parents, and a desire to have children.
National game "Kyz kuu" and bayga in several categories are an indispensable tradition of the festival. Kazaksha kures, exhibition of handicrafts in the forest Arbat attracted thousands of spectators. While experts have been choosing the most beautiful yurt, local grandmothers fought for the right to be called the best.
Balsulu UMURZAKOVA, RESIDENT OF CHESMENSKY DISTRICT, RUSSIA:
People respect Kazakhs and value Kazakh culture and we want such events to be organized annually.
Local national centers seek to expand the optional Kazakh classes. This year, Russia adopted a law on payment for teachers who conduct such classes. Teachers from Chelyabinsk share experience with the language development department of Kostanay region.
Kanat SEYTIKOV, HEAD OF ‘AZAMAT’ KAZAKH CENTER, CHELYABINSK, RUSSIA:
We want to cover the whole region. Teachers will officially receive payment only after parents sign an application with a request to conduct optional classes for their children.
One ton of beshbarmak was cooked for the guests. 30 volunteers have fed 5,000 people.
