Government should provide support for leisure facilities, especially in terms of financing
With every additional rouble spent on culture, crime goes down and people living in the region get more involved. This will ultimately bring us closer to the solution of the problem that we all try to solve: how to make people stay in the Far East and make sure they live here happily — Roman Karmanov, Chief Executive Officer, Presidential Fund for Cultural Initiatives.
We should continue spending big to support theatres, art galleries, etc., and to bring celebrity conductors, performers, paintings, exhibitions, projects and so on, in order to create an environment here, so that this environment could be sustained further down the line — Alla Smorodinova, Vice-Rector for International Relations, Innovation and Additional Education, Far Eastern State Institute of Arts.
Street culture exists today, and there are many festivals. <...> It is time for the government and the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East to pay attention to this phenomenon, because it will greatly involve young people and push them to develop a healthy and creative lifestyle — Maxim Kosenko, General Director, Youth House (Komsomolsk-on-Amur).
We would like the museum to become a kind of a place for discovery, not only for those who visit the city, but also for the locals who could discover something new for themselves — Larisa Kotreleva, Director of the Branch of the State Tretyakov Gallery in Vladivostok.
