Cultural Exchange

Opening the world to Russia, and Russia to the world

The world has grown accustomed to seeing Russia through the prism of sensationalised newspaper headlines. But there is another Russia to know.

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

Our ‘Cultural Exchange’ programme seeks to overcome borders and build connection and collaboration. We support programmes that allow exceptional Russian talent the chance to encounter the world, to interact and be changed by different cultures, ideas and environments.

Our cultural exchange programme gives gifted Russians the freedom and space to 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 strengthen the fabric of human to human relations – and allow individuals the freedom to develop their unique vision free from ideological ties.

Do you have a project that facilitates collective exchange and growth? If so, 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.
