BRICS Alliance is a playground of cultural interaction on the initiative of citizens.
The idea of culture as something associated only with the products of creative activity, is not true.

Hardly in human history, there is a term which meaning would be so broad and would cover more areas of human activity. We have every right to speak about the culture of relationships, business culture, a culture of production, not to mention the material and religious culture, the culture of the society and the interaction of world cultures.

The world today is confronted with numerous problems that have arisen, including the fact that the pace of technologies of transport and communication, blurring the boundaries between nations and peoples, far ahead of the willingness of the peoples themselves to contacts outside the boundaries.

In fact, consciousness of the majority of the population of various states of the world to this day remains closed for an active interaction with other cultures, and this is not surprising: the solution to this problem lies not in laws or statutes, but in the long-term training based on positive expectations.

To learn more
Our ancestors, for example, mastering the languages and traditions of other countries, motivated by the desire to trade and share technology, to live in peace with its immediate neighbors and to share experiences with the people of the far corners of the planet.

In addition to the merchants or soldiers there was a profession of traveler - and is still alive today, though not as urgent as before: - of a man gathering information about the customs and traditions in distant lands, and bringing this information to their compatriots by expanding their knowledge and horizons, creating a platform for future cooperation with people of other cultures. Little by little, bit by bit, step by step people were getting to know each other. Gradually they learn not to be afraid. Gradually they found ways to collaborate.

Today, we have no possibility to wait for decades. The realities of today's world are such that the time separating the country, even in the physical world was reduced from weeks and months to hours, and the virtual world - to a fraction of a second. Consequently, work on the mutual understanding of cultures and their mutual enrichment must be carried out by several orders of magnitude more intense than it was done traditionally.

International Alliance of BRICS Strategic Projects creates a platform on which cultures of member-countries may interact not only within the federal official events , but also on the initiative of the citizens of these countries. The best programs are supported - it is important only (especially on early stage) that their main trend was the focus on mutual understanding and cooperation .
We welcome different views of the same phenomena, objects and events in the world - most importantly, that differences mutually enrich each other, and did not seek to sole correctness at the expense of others. Development of joint reviews, joint assessments and joint understanding - this is a global problem of the culture of each society being transformed over time into the task of world culture.

Masterpieces of human civilization have the creators, but do not have the specific owners. They belong to all mankind and serve as its unification. So, the pyramids of Egypt were established by labor and the genius of the ancient people, are being saved by the people of a particular country, but belong to all mankind. Likewise - "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci, founded in Italy, stored in France, but it is a world heritage. Similarly - music. Similarly - literature.

Today, we have every right to consider sport as a world heritage, certain types of which were born in different parts of the world. Food culture has also become international: Chinese restaurants in Russia, America or Europe, the Italian pizzeria in Africa, the Indian café in Canada, do not surprise anybody.

Such parallels we can easily find in any field of activity: in science, technology, linguistics, medicine - even in politics, when it is positive. Examples of today's global practices show that cultural unpreparedness may even destroy the best intentions, as it happens, for example, in the case of refugees from the Arab world to Europe.

Speaking of culture, we always mean the rules of constructive interaction. All that separates people, is not a culture. Those world religions that coexist peacefully with other churches and denominations have become repositories of the spiritual culture of peace. Those who try to use them for separation are out of culture. It seems simple, but in order to make this idea become common and widespread, it takes time and common efforts.

International Alliance of BRICS Strategic Projects is involved in realizing such programs and projects, that serve as conductors of ideas of creative role of the world's cultures, their uniting mission.

The cultures of the participating countries can interact not only within the framework of official events , but also by initiatives of the citizens of these countries
By developing and strengthening the cultural ties between the nations, we are building a language of communication on the basis of mutual understanding, mutual respect and mutual support. In the future, this language will be successfully used in all other areas of collaboration and cooperation: from science to technology, from business to healthcare, from social projects to innovative programs.

"BRICS Conductorless Symphony Orchestra"
Symbolically, the orchestra without a conductor was invented and assembled in Moscow about 100 years ago. Created at the initiative of the violinist Lev Zeitlin under the influence of the Bolshevik idea of "collective work" Persimfans (First Symphony Ensemble) was the first good team, who managed to bring a symphonic performance to life, based only on the creative initiative of each of the musicians. At rehearsals Persimfans used methods of rehearsals of chamber ensembles, decisions on matters of interpretation were taken collectively. Among the members were Persimfans greatest musicians of the time - the soloists of the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra, professors and students of the Moscow Conservatory. These bands have been created in other countries: USA, Germany, Brazil etc.

75 musicians – the best musicians and soloists from BRICS countries – will present the unique program. Different music, from classic works well known all-over the world up to works of modern composers of BRICS countries will be performed (Heitor Villa-Lobos, Vijay Upadhyaya, Guan Xia, Michael Mosoeu-Moreane, Ravi Shankar, Chaikovsky).

Coherent performance of an orchestra without a conductor, where each musician is responsible for a portion of performance and is capable of self-sense single musical space of the creative team, to create harmony in diversity, promotes intercultural understanding and global cooperation based on the common language of music, symbolically demonstrates the enormous potential of the BRICS countries to become a reference point for the rest of the planet. The harmonious interaction with each other without external control underlines the feasibility of further development of the system of international relations in the absence of a unipolar world and strengthening geopolitical multipolarity.

Presentations will be organized in places (theater and private property), suitable for people with disabilities. According to the rules, projects funded from the federal budget, including arising from the special programs to encourage culture, are obliged to provide free access of people with disabilities to such events, thereby enabling them to fully perform their cultural rights.

From India – Indian National Youth Orchestra, from Russia – The First Simphony Youth Orchestra of International BRICS Alliance.

The purpose of the project is constant performances of the orchestra at the iconic events of the BRICS countries.

Director in Russia – Larisa Zelentsova
