Culture as a driver for regional development and improving quality of life in the regions
4 September 2019
To strengthen the unity of the multi-ethnic Russian nation, it is very important to invest in a shared space for education and culture and in the preservation of traditional values. The development of creative industries in the regions as well as support for national manufacturing and youth business could help to build communities and improve people’s quality of life. That is why the first paragraph in Putin’s list of instructions for the implementation of the Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly dated 20 February 2019 calls for the expansion of support for local cultural initiatives related to regional history, folk art, and the preservation of the nation’s heritage.

• How do cultural projects impact the economic development of regions and facilitate the development of the people living there?
• What successful practices in the preservation of territorial identity should be applied in the Far East?
• What measures exist to support the development of regional brands and businesses? The state, business, or NGO: who should play the primary role in shaping the «cultural landscape» of a territory?
