...of one of the best dictators in Europe
August 30th marks 52th birthday of the belarussian president, Alexander Lukashenko. During Lukashenko's critics and opponents suffer inside belarussian prisons, "Kultur Aktiv" society and its supporters celebrate his birthday.
The celebrations for people of all ages will begin with an official act at the Belarus embassy In the absence of famous German musician Udo Lindenberg a representative of President Lukashenko will receive a leather jacket. This is a symbol of the dictator's close relationship with his country's rock music community. A majority of music groups do not have the right to perform in their country and are especially under care of the still active KGB in Belarus.
In the second half of the day kids will celebrate the dictator's birthday. A special kids comedy performance talks about qualities of a dictatorship.
In the evening honorable guests will gether at club "Schaufenster" (ex-club art der kultur, Bischofsweg) to watch a comedy movie, the big man's portrait. To conclude this celebration everyone is invited to the party with belarussian expierenced DJ Cyberpunk.

- 29.05. – 01.06.2006: BELAWEEK – Belarus in Dresden:
To raise the attention to the repression of subculture by the German public. What does it mean to live in a country only thousand kilometres from
Dresden with its own opinion but to have not the same civil rights? Achieve maximum media presence to sensitise especially the youth to the
situation in Belarus: Democracy, Liberty. Apart from the maximum medium output we want to sensibilize young people for the situation in Belarus and
promote democracy and liberty regarding art, culture and "simple growing up". The concert should combine fun and sense – the income goes in favour
of a holiday camp of Belarusian children in Dresden.

A complex exchange project with Armenia was pushed, with 10 project partners involved from four countries and different branches. As well the
