On February 22, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. in Perm State University there is the presentation of the design-project of the recreational and exhibition space of the Perm University History Museum. It is one of the final events of the “Peremena (or “Break” in Russian) Laboratory” project. To recap, in December 2016 Peter Stabrovsky, designer of the “Campus Martius” project, held the master class on making the models for the recreational space and oversaw the exhibition of these models on February 8, 2017, when Maksim Trofimov, Candidate of  Historical Sciences, told to the visitors about the civic consciousness and the publicity in Ancient Greece and the project team organised an intellectual game “Azbuka” (or “ABC” in Russian), whose topic was the history of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome. Here you can learn more about how it was. The works to establish the future recreational space will start in March-April 2017. The new space near the Perm University History Museum will be opened in May 2017, during the event “Night of Museums and Botanical Garden”.

At 7 p.m., right after the presentation of the project, the blitz-debates “Argy-Bargy in the Museum” will take place. The art of speaking (Ars Oratoria) appeared and developed in Ancient Greece. Orators persuaded the audience to accept their point of view or accused their political opponents of the political disloyalty. Since not everyone had the ability to speak eloquently, there appeared the profession of orator. They were commissioned to write speeches for participating in judicial proceedings (to defend or to prosecute).

The themes of the blitz-debates will be connected with Perm State University, the Perm University History Museum, the patronage and, indeed, the museum’s antique collections.

The partners of the event are the blitz-debates “Argy-Bargy” of Perm State University.
