We are pleased to announce the third calligraphy and lettering festival — Calligafest — which will take palce from September 30 to October 6 at the St. Petersburg Union of Artists.
The main goal of Calligrafest is the creation of a single professional community in which specialists could share their experiences, helping each other to develop. We want to unite different schools and studios with the idea of popularizing the art of writing in general and the development of calligraphy in particular. We also try to bring Cyrillic calligraphy to the world stage and introduce it to as many people as possible so that it takes its rightful place among other types of writing that are equally beautiful and rich in history.
Each year, the festival gathers many talented young calligraphers who practice writing in various directions and are engaged in the art of writing. The most eminent writing professionals perform at the festival venues, and networking of the festival’s public events brings together hundreds of interested people. This year you will find an even larger program, new conference speakers, an exhibition of Cyrillic calligraphy and incredible workshops of famous world stars of calligraphy.
