Nicholas Roerich’s (1874–1947) name is known around the world. The graduate of the Saint Petersburg Imperial Academy of Art was one of the leaders of the World of Art movement that shook the art scene in Russia. The exhibition consists of four parts: the paintings of Nicholas and his son Svetoslav, exhibits from the Latvian Roerich Society, material from the Liepāja Museum about Roerich’s links to Latvia and Latvian artists, Roerich’s colleagues from the Academy of Art and his Latvian students living in Saint Petersburg. Yet probably the most important aspect of this exhibition would be, of course, the artist’s own specially selected paintings sent to Latvia from India in 1937. This is the fifth exhibition of work by Nicholas Roerich to be held at the Lithuanian Art Museum.

Expressing yourself through theatrical performing arts can help you, as a sexual assault survivor, heal in all kinds of colourful ways. Not only can it give you personal empowerment and growth, but it can also help carry a powerful voice. Many survivors lose their voice, so being able to project it into a dramatic, expressive setting on stage can help those without a voice to know they are not alone and that we stand by them at all times. Thanks to an amazing Survivor Advocate, Kimleigh Smith, (also from RAINN Speakers Bureau) and her wonderful talent in the performing arts, her own story of survival is being used on stage with her play «T-O-T-A-L-L-Y» by Kimleigh’ to help other survivors find their own voice. Now it is Lithuania’s turn to witness her talent.
