Yesterday, on March 25, 2021, Russia traditionally celebrated the Day of Culture. On the occasion of the holiday, specialists from the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Centre (VTsIOM) presented the data from the all-Russian survey on the attitude of Russians towards culture and workers in this industry.
The poll showed that over the past 3-5 years, the cultural life of 35 per cent of Russians surveyed has become more intense. Moreover, 45 per cent of Russians would like the activities of their children or grandchildren to be related to the sphere of culture (more often young Russians aged 18-34 would like this to happen, 51-54 per cent).
Among cultural and art workers, the most in-demand in Russia were music and dance teachers (10 per cent), singers and other performers (7 per cent), film and theatre actors (6 per cent), and artists (5 per cent).
According to the respondents, of the works of contemporary Russian writers and poets, the books of Boris Akunin deserve translation into other languages of the world. The activities of Russian directors and actors also deserve worldwide recognition, so Russians especially appreciate the works by Nikita Mikhalkov (18 per cent), Fedor Bondarchuk (7 per cent), and Andrey Konchalovsky (4 per cent).
