Arts in the Park is an annual celebration of the arts at TIS. It is an event that aims to promote cross-cultural exchange and which recognizes the arts as a critical component of a 21st century education.
The event will be held from 2 until 6 p.m. and there will be a wide variety of activities, student work and visiting artist performances. This year we have expanded the showcase to celebrate work from the areas of film, literature and poetry, dance, drama, visual art and music. In addition there will also be an arts and craft bazaar, an international food fair, a book swap, a variety of stalls and lots of interactive things to get involved with!
As part of the performance program, we are excited to host a large group of visiting artists. Actors from the Ilkhom Theater will workshop with grade 11 students, and musicians from the Tashkent State Conservatory, the Tashkent State Ballet and Opera Theater, and the Junior Choir from the Musical Lyceum will perform on the main stage.
The festival will also focus on work that TIS students produce both within and beyond the arts and English curriculum. This year work on show will include creative writing, storytelling and film from the recent writing retreat, graffiti, street portraits, swing and salsa workshops, ceramics, physical theatre, a flash mob, Shakespeare on Film, a DP visual arts exhibition and much more!
The sun will be shining, entrance is free, and there will be plenty to do, see, and buy! We look forward to seeing you there.
