The event schedule "of the Week of Belarusian Thinking, which will be held from 19-25 September, has been formed!
Dozens of different events across the country will unite Belarusians, for whom thinking is an absolute value. And it's not just philosophers and thinkers – the organizers emphasize that by thinking they mean not only professional identity, but above all the ability to speak freely, consciously and reasonably.
A number of civil society institutions and educational institutions have united by the idea of Belarusian thinking as a part of our identity and self-understanding of the nation. At the end of May 2015 a joint cultural project "Quote Your Own!" was launched, which served as the start of "the Year of Belarusian thinking." Bright events of the year widely and publicly represent the intellectual achievements of Belarus and promote them in contemporary culture.
Thus, the Week of Belarusian Thinking, which will take place in Belarus from 19-25 September, aims at summing up the results of the Year and presenting the diversity of forms and manifestations of Belarusian thinking in the modern Belarusian society.
The Week of Belarusian Thinking will be launched with the exhibition "Cogito Albarutheniae. The panorama of Belarusian thinking", which is organized by "EuroBelarus", the Flying University, and the Belarusian Collegium. The opening will take place on September 16 at 19.00 in "Korpus8" space (Masherova Ave, 9). The organizers emphasize that the exhibition starts on Friday, on the eve of the Week, and hope that thanks to it, the participants will get inspired by the atmosphere, collect their thoughts, decide on their schedule among the events of the Week", and plunge into it.
