Russian Arts and Culture Month has become an integral part of the Russian speaking community and the entire City of West Hollywood.  The cultural and creative identity of the Russian speaking community is embodied in its visual arts, history, and language.  The cultural pride is derived from sharing its values, beliefs, identity, and self-expression with one another and the Southern California community as a whole. Our Russian speaking community represents at least 15% of our city’s population and they are an important factor in our business and economic growth. 

Additionally, During Russian Arts and Culture Month, the Russian Advisory Board of the City of West Hollywood has established three awards to recognize individuals, businesses and organizations that have had a positive impact and bettered the lives of members of the Russian speaking community in West Hollywood and the Los Angeles region. 

These awards will be given at the official ceremony of the 12th   Annual Russian Community Awards Presentation that will take place on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at the Russian Arts and Culture Festival  on the  main stage at 4 p.m.  Would you like to  nominate someone  you know?  The application is here.

Our goal is to promote dialogue, understanding and appreciation between the global citizens of West Hollywood, greater Los Angeles and abroad, as well as to showcase the contribution of the Russian speaking community into the life of the City and the United States of America.

The 16th Russian Arts and Culture Week will be exploring many aspects of Russian arts and culture brought to this country from the various regions of the former Soviet Union.  As always, we are specifically seeking artists, performers, and proposals that highlight Russian heritage, its history, and culture.
