Chelyablnsk-FribourgThe social society "Chelyablnsk-Fribourg" has been founded in the city of Chelyabinsk recently.
The personal and cultural contacts linking these both regions have the story
lasting for more than 3 years already. They started from the tour of the
Swiss theatre " Guignol 'a Roulettes" (Pierre-Alain Rone) to Chelyabinsk in
1993 and the shows of the "White Goat Theatre"
(Viktor Plotnikov) that took place in Fribourg in 1994. It was followed by
the children groups exchange, two art festivals (one was in Fribourg
Both sides wish to futher continue the development of these creative contacts. Now the official structure will help to realise the program of cooperation because Switzerland has the association "Fribourg-Chelyabinsk" which is an equal and official partner of the Chelyabinsk society "Chelyabinsk-Fribourg".
Vast opportunities that both cities have received now are not limited by the cultural exchanges. There is a great interest of the business world from both sides in the sucessful joint work.
Our plans for 1997:
We invite everybody who is interested in these programs to participate or support them.
