Belarusian culturologist and writer

I was born in Minsk and live in Belarus. I finished a musical school and entered to the Belarusian State Economic University for the specialty "management in the socio-cultural sphere". In 1997 I entered at postgraduate school at the Belarusian State University of culture and arts and in 2002 I've got the degree of Ph.D. Now the main field of my activity is a research work and teaching. Except it, I always was fond of creativity. I completed the course of creative writing at the Belarusian State University and published three books of poetry and prose and two monographs. Since 2000 I’m the member of Belarusian Writers Union, since 2012 - the member of Belarusian PEN-center. In addition, I finished the preparatory courses in the Studio of Cinema Actors (acting technique, elocution, stage movement), and took part in three youth pantomime theatre's performances. My professional skills in teaching, combined with my extensive experience in the fields of musical and literary creativity, DJing, concert and festival organization, journalism, advertisements and public relations, have convinced me that intercultural communication is a career option I would like to develope.
