An interesting project – a Festival of Cement Sculpture “A Cement Provocation” – took place in summer, 2013. The Festival was held within the project “Gornozavodskoye – SOLID”. This project won in the competition “Cultural Centers of the Perm Region” with financial support from the Ministry of Culture, Youth Policy and Mass Communication of the Perm Region. The organizer of the Festival became Non-profit Fund of Sculptors of Russia “Edinenie”. Partner of the Festival was “Gornozavodskcement, Ltd”.

The project had several stages that included work of the sculptors with the gypsum model of the sculptures, taking a cast of the models and then casting itself. The sculptures were installed in the central streets of Gornozavodsk, a small town in the Perm region.
Presentation of the sculptures and greeting the sculptors – authors of the works – took place on 10 August on the central square of Gornozavodsk. The event became a real holiday for the citizens. During the voting People’s Choice Award was given to the sculpture “Pigeons”, author – a young sculptor from Yekaterinburg Aleksander Savinov.
