The results of all the activities of October 2009 by the program “Create Yourself”

The following events took place in September-October 2009 as part of The Moscow Times' charity program Create Yourself:

1)      Exhibition of photographs by child-participants of the charity programme at the Manezh, 13-19 October 2009. In partnership with Moscow House of Photography with support from VTB Capital. The company Ferrero Russia was acting 'sweet partner' by providing presents of chocolate for the authors of the works on show at the exhibition opening on 12th October. On show at the exhibition were the best works of photography done by children throughout 2009. The exhibition attracted a large number of visitors and popular mass media.

2)      23, 27 September and 18 October 2009 – cooking masterclasses for children from Downside Up and social rehabilitation centre 'Otradnoye' in partnership with the project 'Half-a-Teaspoon of creativity in the kitchen’ and the restaurant ‘Dymov #1’. The children really enjoyed the cooking lessons and loved trying to create something interesting and tasty with their own hands. From 18 October the cycle of cooking masterclasses for children and teenagers from the social rehabilition centre ‘Otradnoye’ started. A special program was developed for this group, covering what you can cook for yourself and your family for everyday meals.

The children took active part in discussing the paintings on show in the hall and then drew pictures of how they envisage a hero of our times.
