The Pushkin Square
The Pushkin Foundation has participated in numerous events as part of the festivities of the bicentennial of the birth of Alexandre Pushkin. The activities include the following:
In December 2002 The Pushkin Foundation participated in the choice of texts and in the writing of One Night in St.Petersburg with Pushkin performed at the Théatre-Poeme as well as in the loan of texts and photographs for the exposition of Alexandre Pushkin which accompanied the play. The play was so successful that the Foundation and the Theatre-Poéme collaborated in its production at the Literary Café in St.Petersburg and at the Belgian Embassy in Moscow in October of the following year. .
The year 2003 was the year of the tercentenary of the city of St. Petersburg. The Pushkin Foundation participated on many occasions and we will name just a few. On June 6 we collaborated with the National Theatre of the Communauté Wallonie-Bruxelles in the performance of the play Our Pushkin by the Studio Jeune Théatre at the Pushkin Museum in St.Petersburg. The production was such a great success that it was re-run for three successive days.
On December 6 we organised a production of Gorki-Chekov and a fund-raising reception and at the National Theatre in Brussels. Funds from the evening were allocated to the Children's Oncology Center in St. Petersburg.
In June 2004 the Pushkin Foundation organised a trip to St. Petersburg and surrounding area in its capacity of building Russian-Belgian cultural relations. In the same year the Foundation published a bilingual (French Russian) compendium of a Russian author who lives in Belgium.
All the funds raised in these various activities are dedicated to our charity work.
The Foundation has already completed the following projects:

In 2005, with the support of the Swedish group of Association Femmes d'Europe, we were able to provide an electronic device (Erbotom ICC 300H) which causes coagulation of blood in the smallest vessels at the time of surgical incisions.
