What We Do

Arts and Culture

Our programs supporting arts and culture are designed to strengthen cultural institutions through the encouragement of talented, innovative individuals. The Foundation  promotes a project-based approach to running cultural institutions, trying to increase their impact on local communities, to provide incentives for cultural exchange and networking, to present unknown, under-researched aspects of Russian culture and to reveal unknown museum collections to the general public. We believe that arts and culture play a very important role in society’s development and growth.

The Foundation activities in the sphere of arts and culture embrace a wide range of issues ranging from the support of local museums with unknown but precious collections to a long lasting cooperation with the State Hermitage museum, from encouraging talented journalists and museum curators to arranging such open community oriented events as Museum Guide Festival and facilitating exhibitions of Russian arts and culture thus presenting our cultural heritage worldwide.
