Program Overview

Program Description:

Unravel the enigma of Russia through the lens of a modern artist. Trace the empire’s rich heritage in world-famous museums and performance halls. Engage with today’s free-thinking artists in studios and behind the scenes. Learn new skills, then roll up your sleeves and dabble in the graphic arts to make your own mark.

Unlike the typical tourist, you’ll chart your own course by exploring far beyond the main attractions. Get ready to discover Russia’s visual, musical, cinematic, and theatre art in all its glory. Learn about today’s contemporary scene by uncovering its roots in Russian classical arts, as well as the avant-garde movements of the 20th century, socialist realism, and the underground culture of the Soviet era.

How will you spend your days and nights? Visiting working studios of contemporary graphic artists, designers, and musicians. Taking graphic arts workshops to practice hands-on skills of your own. Meeting with popular Russian videobloggers, young leaders, and trendsetters. Bonding with new friends through board game nights, sporting events, cinema clubs, and cooking master classes.
