UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 9, 2019. Mayor of Yekaterinburg Alexander Vysokinsky confirmed the latest amendments to the municipality’s program on the development of culture and arts in Yekaterinburg in 2017-2020.

According to the city council’s press service, the changes have to do with the amount of funding allocated for the years 2019 and 2020: extra money will come in from a number of sources.

RUB 2.8m gets allocated from Yekaterinburg’s budget to coordinate the nationwide Russia’s Cities 2030 Strategic Development Forum; the city’s own development is on the agenda.

The city also directs RUB 976,000 from its budget for urban improvements next to Strela Culture & Entertainment Center at 14 Letchikov St.

‘Yekaterinburg Duma Deputies directed the money set aside to deal with pressing local issues to a new ceramics-baking unit for students at G.S. Mosin Children’s Art School. The equipment costs RUB 387,000,’ the press service says.

Additionally, RUB 857,000 got granted to three Yekaterinburg theaters this year from the inter-budgetary transfer funds. The money will get split among Young Spectators’ Theater, Puppet Theater, and Contemporary Choreography Theater in equal portions.

Next year, RUB 3.65m will also get directed to the construction of Hermitage Ural Culture & Education Center from Sverdlovsk Region’s budget.
