PREFACE
Dear all, The Arts Council of Mongolia is very happy to present to you our annual report for 2012. This year we decided to decorate the cover of the annual report with the painting named ‘’Circle’’ by young emerging talent D. Batzorig. The choice was not accidental. On one hand, the different circles of various colors symbolizes the eternity of human beingsin all their existential diversities. When you look with a wider “lens”, our culture with its own independent uniqueness becomes a portrait of world culture in all its multitudes, dynamics, and forms. These cultural landscapes shape the actions of the ACM to create an authentic ‘’portrait” of Mongolian culture where a genuine balance of modernization & traditions is essential. Your support and participation are important for us in creating suchunique pieces with their ideals of beauty, sensibility, integrity, longevity, and diversity. All our actions in 2012 were made to create a sensible “portrait” with key messages that include: international cooperation, artistic excellence, and the capacity of cultural sector. The contents of our portrait became richer thanks to the new modern dance performance‘Duruu’ (Stirrup) with music composed by Sh. Ulziibayar and choreography from M. Munguntsesteg, the Indigenous contemporary dance performance “Spirit” with the Bangarra Dance Theatre of Australia, the Italian theatrical performance “The Betrothed” by Alessandro Manzoni , “From the heart” contemporary art exhibition of the artist J. Munkhtsesteg, and the French photography exhibition “Mongolia 100 years ago through a French photographer’s camera” with the Albert Kahn Museum. The ACM expanded opportunities for artists to create new, inspiring artworks in national and international contexts through over 10 projects, reaching over 250 artists with the following projects: “Lost & Found” residency program led by artist S. Sarantsatsralt, the Mongolian-Korean Nomadic Arts Residency under the theme “Reflect”, an arts journalism training led by the “Arts Journal” publisher Mr. Douglas McLennan, and our Fellowship and Young Leadership programs. The ACM hasalso expanded the geographic reach of its cultural partnerships to form international ties withthe aim of allowing greater cultural and intellectual exchange, as evidenced by the participation of 20 artists in such projects as the “ArgaBileg” ethno jazz band’s U.S. tour, a documentary film scriptwriting workshop with the French NGO Ecran Libre, the indigenous dance residency program at the Banff Centre in Canada, the Percussion Ensemble of the Music and Dance College’s placement in the International Marimba Competition in Nuremberg, Germany, and six Young Leaders participating in the Oslo International Jazz Festival. The ACM worked with 2500 children to build their capacity by providing youth access to the arts, inspiring their creativity and imagination, and preserving their cultural heritage through programs such as the‘Trash is Not Trash!’ recycling arts education project,Mongolian-American School Pairing
