Who came up with this idea?
Некоммерческий фонд современного искусства Леонида Михельсона V-A-C.
What is it?
Seven projects in various parts of Moscow beyond the Garden and Boulevard Rings, which became alternatives to the traditional cultural centers – museums and exhibition halls. In all of the district-level projects organized by this foundation, professional artists, play-writers, producers and composers work together with local residents.
What have they accomplished?
The 2015-2016 Space Extension programme was continued. A performance was produced in which Krylatskiy district residents acted as participants and co-authors. They showed an experimental opera in the laboratory block of the Moscow Power Engineering Institute in Lefortovo. A cinema forum was conducted, an open musical rehearsal and live action role playing (LARP) with Moscow chess communities are being prepared. Together with ethnic community representatives, they organized creative workshops and are preparing a festival in the park
