Initiatives of the Year of the Theater fit into the range of events that traditionally mark World Poetry Day (March 21) and International Theater Day (March 27) in Krasnodar. This was shown by the event, which took place at the venue of which was N. A. Nekrasov Central City Library, organized by the employees of the Southern branch of the Heritage Institute. The event held in the literary lounge of the Central City Library had two main goals. First, to uncover a wide range of opportunities that open when mastering folklore in all forms of art. Secondly, to introduce people of Krasnodar to the work of G. P. Dmitriev (1942–2016), a composer and a native of the city. The house, which is situated on one of the central streets of Krasnodar, where the childhood and youth of the outstanding Russian composer were spent, must acquire the status of an object of cultural heritage.
