Mongolian Children’s Palace Interview with B.Tsengelmaa

Mongolian Children’s Palace

Location: Ulaanbaatar

Year: 2015

It was in 1958 that the Mongolian Children Palace opened its activities, in the premise now known as ‘The Children’s Craftsmanship Center’ for the purpose of organising proper leisure activities for children and of encouraging their talents and potentials. Multi-facet curricula are developed around 18 special subjects, on performing and industrial arts. Students of the Children’s Palace participate in international festivals and contests. The training courses become a sort of pathway for the children to make their next step in the future so as to become professional musicians, dancers or singers. The organization selects 2000 children a year, but some other kids – between 1.000 and 2.000 – remain without any access. Given this situation, the Capital City Governor’s Office decided to open branch group training courses also in the city’s outskirts and in the ‘ger’ district.
