ArtMania agency

a company with 15 years experience in arranging different kind
of events both in Russia and internationally
One lives to enjoy the Beauty. When it is possible, he or she values life, and arranges festival to celebrate it. Music is the space where our souls dwell. Song is the quintessence of mankind culture in whole. One shall listen to what the artist sings and how he sings it. If there is no beauty in the song, it's better to exclude it from one's life. Beauty is of course something very individual. Tastes usually differ, but when they meet it's happiness.

We are always happy to meet new partners, sponsors and friends. Nothing can enrich creative people more than shared passion with art.
