ANNUAL REPORT 2014

PREFACE
The Arts Council of Mongolia is very happy to present our annual report for 2014.
The chosen cover of the ACM 2014 Annual Report is the piece Moose, a sculpture made from recycled materials by artist M.
Erdenebayar. In 2014, Arts Council of Mongolia (ACM) launched the recycled sculpture series through the Art for Change community
art project with the support of the Asia Foundation. The series is now on public display in the 14th Khoroo of Sukhbaatar District.
Community residents in the Art for Change project participated in the artwork theme selection. Thirty years ago, moose were
common in the project areas, which were empty steppe at the time. Over the past 25 years, the area has been settled by migrants
from the countryside, creating a dense urban residential zone known as the ger districts. The artist and community chose the fauna
theme as a reminder of the disappearing ecological balance we face.
Since the urbanization, the moose has not returned. But we still have the responsibility to take care of our environment. Through
this community art project, we aimed to benefit the environment by increasing public awareness of reducing and recycling waste
through a creative process. The participating community, children, and youth were able to spend time creatively and engage in an
enjoyable experience by approaching the subject through art.
This project may be small, but we do not believe it will end here at one drop in the bucket or the voice of one artist. We hope the
cultural sector will work together on such issues in the future.
In 2014, ACM effectively and successfully continued its activities while creating new initiatives and implementing sustainable
projects.
One of ACMs major programs is the Arts Program. In 2014, the Arts Program focused on creating new initiatives and promoting
artistic excellence with increased competitiveness in partnership with the arts and culture sector. With broader goals and capacity,
the Arts Program implemented 22 different projects, trainings, and international exchange programs in the fields of film, dance,
music, visual arts, and arts management, involving more than 300 artists and arts managers and reaching over 7,000 people.
In 2014, to promote cultural diversity and bring world-renowned talents to Mongolia, the Arts Program presented AGULA, a joint
music production of Arga Bileg Ethno Jazz Band and the Henri Kaenzig Quintet; the dance production Reflection by Sodgerel T.,
principal dancer of Tumen Ekh National Song and Dance Ensemble; and, as part of the Ulaanbaatar International Film Festival, the
Arts Program presented twelve award-winning films selected by prestigious international film festivals including Cannes, Venice,
Toronto, Gotheburg, Tokyo, Sao Paolo and Berlinale. In addition, the Program provided a networking platform for international
exchange between Mongolian artists, performers, and managers and more than fifteen countries around the world including
Austria, Algeria, Iceland, France, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Palestine, Russia, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and the U.S.
In 2014, Arts Council of Mongolias Community Arts Education Program focused on promoting public awareness of arts and culture
and increasing the value of arts and culture for individual and social development. The program implemented nine projects to

increase public awareness of traditional and contemporary arts in the local community. As a highlight of the program, ACM initiated
and organized Lest We Regret Reduce, Rethink & Recycle! environmental arts exhibition, with the support of Rio Tinto LLC,
to improve understanding of proper consumption and waste management. Utilizing the arts, the exhibition facilitated awarenessraising of waste reduction and recycling and the impact of waste on the environment and human health. As a continuation of the
successful results of the project, ACM initiated implementation of Art for Change community art project in partnership with the Asia
Foundation.
In 2014, the Cultural Heritage Program focused on promoting cultural heritage to the general public, improving preservation of
heritage sites, building capacity of cultural organizations, and transmitting intangible cultural heritage. A number of projects were
carried out in this respect, including the Museum Secret TV documentary series, Amarbayasgalant Monastery Fire and Theft
Security project, a bilateral exchange program with the Vatican Museum, an acid-free museum supply and training project, folk
arts training, and capacity building for countryside cultural centers and museums.
ACMs Development Program aims to ensure sustainable development of ACM and Mongolian arts and culture and to increase
earned revenues through building creative partnerships with local and international businesses based in Mongolia.
In 2014, our operations and successful implementation were made possible by the sustained support of the following international
and local donors: The Asia Foundation, ACM-US, US Embassy in Mongolia, Royal Norwegian Embassy in Beijing, MCS Group,
MDC & KhanLex LLP, Rio Tinto LLC, Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism, Fund for the Development of Arts & Culture, Arts
