The lecture is aimed to demonstrate the connection between Design, Fashion and Visual Arts and a cross disciplinary approach IED offers to students. 

As Ellen Summerfield states in his book Crossing Cultures through Film (1993), “film helps to create a unique environment for cross-cultural learning because it speaks to our emotions as well as our intellect.

In the context of the Cross Cultural Workshop, we will look at the relationship of facts and the filmmakers personal perception, when depicting the experiences made, the Kazakh culture and producing a relevant and captivating film. 

The opening ceremony of the exhibition will take place right after the lecture!

Special guest and co-lecturer - Vlad Sludskiy, Curator and art consultant.
