In the archival fund of the department of arts of the regional executive committee there is information that on the basis of instructions from the All-Union House of Folk Art named after N.K. From February 15, 1937, Krupskaya, the regional department of art, singled out the amateur sector as an independent unit - the House of Folk Art, designed to solve the problems of identifying, organizing and methodological assistance to rural amateur groups; to show examples of amateur performances by holding evenings, folk art concerts, and art exhibitions; on conducting creative thematic seminars, conferences, meetings on all issues of amateur performances; on the organization at the House of Folk Art of studios and study groups, theatrical, orchestral, choral, and fine choreographic.

It should be noted that by the time the House of Folk Arts was created, amateur groups with their repertoire and established traditions had already been created in the region.


Today, February 15, 1937, in the third proletarian capital of the country - the city of Ivanovo - the House of Folk Art was opened. The Council for the management of amateur performances at the regional department of arts approved the indicative program of the evening of folk art. The evening will be held on March 21. The program includes performances of the choir of metalworkers, the folk choir of the housewives of the club of the excavator plant, the staff of the horns. Ivanovo schoolchildren will also perform at the evening.
