ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. successfully implements two social projects
On May 15, 2012, Krasnokamensk (Trans-Baikal Territory) hosted a premiere of the music and dance show Composer’s Dreams. The show was staged by participants of the First Creative Music Contest ARTnova, launched in February 2012.
The two performances were attended by more than 1500 town residents, including senior managers and employees of Priargunsky Industrial Mining and Chemical Union, officials from regional and local authorities, as well as the participants’ friends and relatives.
The names of the project winners were announced immediately after the show. The fourteen participants, each of whom received a first-place diploma, will spend a fortnight at a creative camp in Greece in June 2012. Other shortlisted applicants were given valuable gifts from project organisers.
The ARTnova contest is a joint project of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co. and JSC PIMCU, implemented with the assistance of M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University’s Faculty of Arts, the Jacobi Family Foundation for the Support of Sciences and Arts, as well as the Administration of the Municipal District of Krasnokamensk and Krasnokamensky District. The contest is aimed at enabling talented young people to prepare a show within a month under the guidance of professional choreographers, stage directors and vocal coaches to be subsequently performed together with professional artists.

The winners were selected by a qualified jury including professional fine-art experts and headed by A.P. Lobodanov, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University.
