We treat everyone involved in our projects as equals. Our aim is to help students and teachers to develop skills and competences that are relevant today, to interest them in art and culture, and help them to seek and find answers to their own questions in the future.
We are keen for groups of school students of all ages to come and participate in our programmes. Young people who meet in various clubs are also welcome. We work with teachers of Russian language and literature, world artistic culture, history and history of art, as well as teacher trainers, theorists, and organisers.

Support for school projects
How to do research and how to structure projects are important skills for schoolchildren today. By preparing a project or doing research, children and teenagers not only gain new knowledge about their subject; they also develop soft skills such as time management, self-organization, teamwork and critical thinking.
All projects and research are given expert support by
Work with teachers
Engaging with teachers is an important part of our work. Teachers of various subjects, teacher trainers, theorists and school administrators are the key agents in interaction between schools and cultural institutions.
We want the House of Culture to be a forum for the teaching community, a platform where teachers meet, exchange what they have learnt, initiate joint projects and share best practice. With this aim in mind we organize regular meetings and projects for teachers. Watch this page for announcements.
