Lecture within the framework of International Baroque Music Academy "Music and Dialogue"

During the lecture, we will talk about musical score. What is already written in the score and how to read it? What is not written but implied? What is the role of musicians in performing early music — strict adherence to musical instructions or free "re-composition" of works? We will also compare and analyze different interpretations of the same pieces.

Online discussion "Me — society — authorities. About freedom and responsibility"

The discussion is about limiting freedom and relations between a person, society and authorities from different social and professional perspectives.

Is it possible to do without government regulation? Is it possible to count on the responsibility of each person when it comes to ensuring the common good? Is it possible to balance restrictions and personal freedom in a situation where the lives, health and well-being of the whole society are at stake?

Online discussion "How we want to live. Protests and the prospect for the future in Belarus"

Belarusians have been protesting for more than three months now, demanding new elections and respecting basic democratic rights. To date, more than 30,000 people have been detained, nevertheless, the protests continue, acquiring new forms and ways of expression.

Is there an opportunity to think about how life in our country with a new president should or could look like? How would we like to live? What kind of future do we need to design?
