Its mission is to support the sustainable development of Mongolian arts and culture and the preservation of cultural heritage. ACM promotes artistic excellence, preserves Mongolian cultural heritage, promotes creativity of youth and children, and brings art to the public. ACM contributes to the education and professional development of students in several ways. One of the important projects is its ‘Future Talent’ scholarship program. The Future Talent scholarship aims to support future arts leaders and young talents who are successfully studying art and culture. Since 2010, they awarded scholarships to 34 students in the amount of 24.3 million MNT to engaged art school students in traditional arts and cultural activities. For the eighth year, ACM and Mr. Ch.Enkhee, Director of the Mongol-American Cultural Association jointly awarded scholarships to three students studying in specific art fields. This year, scholarships were awarded to students Kh.Khaliun, E.Bolorsuvd and B.Sengejav from The Mongolian State University of Arts and Culture. Since 2006, ACM has been implementing an ‘Art for Change’community arts outreach program to increase the value and impact of arts for human development through developing and delivering arts education lessons for school children from underprivileged communities. In 2018, the ‘Art for Change’ outreach program organized a series of classical music concerts with support of ACM board member Mr. J.Maizorig in collaboration with the Mongolian Professional Music Association (MPMA). The opening of the 2018 series started on February 27 at the Ord Gallery Children’s Creativity Center with the concert ‘Peter and the Wolf’ by Prokofiev for students of the 63th school. Musicians from the wind quintet MPMA taught students to play a recorder. Students learned essential techniques and proper breathing for playing the instrument. At the end of the lesson, all the instruments were given to students as a gift. On April 2nd, the MPMA string quartet played classical music of Edvard Grieg Peer Gynt’s suite and Yimura’s ‘A River Flows in You’. They introduced their music instruments to some 150 7th grade students of the 65th secondary school. The String quartet of MPMA gave students the opportunity to conduct musicians and played ‘Uran khas’ by B.Chuluun together. ‘Peter and the Wolf’ by Prokofiev was also organized for 200 5th grade students from the Buyant Ukhaa secon­dary school and gifted them with 10 recorders. In scope of the Arts edu­ cation program, ACM will continue multi-stakeholder activities and training to deve­lop children’s cultural edu­cation and broaden the collaboration between busi­ ness institutions and profes­ sional artists with the above- mentioned activities.

The program also provides leadership and efficient team-work skills for participants by providing practical opportunities to execute small-scale joint community service projects. ACM Fellows were granted $400 to implement four different joint community service projects to provide arts access and arts education for youth and the community. One of the groups, “Time traveller” team of ACM Fellowship Program started a project aimed at raising positive awareness in their community. The project presents artwork which allows you to travel through time with a creation only you can imagine in your mind.

All the participants were given alone time and space to experience mental time travel. Mental time travel offers the opportunity to re-experience or create precious memories, appreciate them, make future plans, and share them with the community as part of the artwork. They moved and travelled to 9 different places, such as arts organizations, universities, schools, cinemas, galleries, concert and event halls, involved over 300 people as part of project, and reached an audience of more than 800 art patrons.

Mongolia has an extreme climate with temperatures soaring to +40 degrees Celsius in summer and plunging to -40 degrees Celsius in the winter. In the past decade, Mongolia’s political and economic life, as if imitating these natural and climatic extremes, has been swinging like a pendulum, from one extreme to another, taxing the endurance and tolerance of the country’s people. Documentary photographer Rentsendorj Bazarsukh has photographed the diversity of Mongolian society for more than a decade and published ‘Mongolia + -40°C’ with support of the Goethe- Institute of Mongolia. On April 6, a discussionwasheldonDocumentary photography as intellectual property and an exhibition opened at the Red Ger Gallery. The photo exhibition will continue to April 15 for the public.
