Cultural Exchange

Opening the world to Russia, and Russia to the world

The world has grown accustomed to seeing Russia through the prism of its authoritarian leaders. But there is another Russia to know.

A Russia with a rich culture, an open spirit and a questioning nature. 

Our ‘Cultural Exchange’ programme is about overcoming borders and building connection and collaboration. We support programmes that allow people from Russia to meet the world and together explore and create new stories, new ideas, new solutions, new ways of being. We support opportunities for cultural exchange and dialogue – moments of encounter that move beyond newspaper headlines – to strengthen the fabric of human to human relations.

Have you got a project that facilitates collective exchange and growth? Then we want to hear from you.

“Russian civil society needs the channels of communication and collaboration with the rest of the world to stay open. There is so much we have to learn from one another.”
