Coordinator of the HSE Student Project Contest

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, extracurricular activities have been continuing online. That’s why we changed the traditional Contest categories. Infrastructural projects will help our creative teams get the necessary equipment for rehearsals and performances. For example, thanks to this support, the whole university will be able to attend the Perm Theatre Studio’s performance of ‘Dragon’, which will be streamed online.

This time, the projects competed in two categories: online events and infrastructural projects. In the final defense, there were three projects from Moscow, three projects from Perm, and one from St. Petersburg.
