Абай күніне орай онлайн чллендж/байқау

Қазақтың ұлы ақыны әрі ағартушысы Абай Құнанбайұлының туғанына 176 жыл толуына орай 2021 жылғы 10 - 20 тамыз аралығында ақынның өлеңдерін оқу онлайн челленджін/байқауын өткіземіз.

Абайдың шығармашылық мұрасы қазақ халқының тарихы мен мәдениетін байытып, оның нағыз рухани игілігіне айналды.
Ақын ретінде Абай қазақтың суырып салма өнерінің тақырыбын кеңейтіп, оған түрлі жанр мен қалып енгізіп, классикалық поэзия деңгейіне көтерді.

Ұлы ақынның мұрасын ұлықтау мен жан-жақты насихаттау үшін байқауға белсенді қатысуға шақырамыз.

Қатысудың басты шарты: ақынның шығармашылығынан бір өлеңінің үзіндісін оқып, ұзақтығы 3 минутке дейінгі бейнежазба түсіріп, оны Facebook/Instagram парақшасына #Abayday176 хэштэгімен жүктеу немесе [email protected] эл. адреске жолдау қажет.

2021 ж. 20 тамызда байқаудың нәтижесі жарияланып, Елшілік атынан үздік қатысушыларға сыйлықтар табысталатын болады.


К 176 годовщине со дня рождения великого казахского поэта и просветителя Абая Кунанбаева Посольство объявляет о запуске конкурса/челленджа по чтению стихов поэта.
Творческое наследие Абая обогатило историю и культуру казахского народа, став его настоящим духовным достоянием.

Как поэт, Абай поднял импровизационную поэзию казахов до уровня классической поэзии, расширил ее тематику, внедрил доселе неизвестные ей жанры и формы. Богатейшее наследие Абая Кунанбаева представляет собой замечательное явление и в истории мировой культуры.

Основная цель мероприятия — продвижение и популяризация богатейшего творческого наследия казахского поэта.

Условие конкурса – чтение отрывков из произведений поэта на видео продолжительностью до 3 мин и опубликовать его на своем аккаунте Facebook/Instagram с хэштэгом #Abayday176 или направить на [email protected].

20 августа 2021 г. будут объявлены итоги конкурса, в соответствии с которыми победителям будут вручены дипломы и призы от Посольства.
