Cultural Ties to Enhance Cooperation between Russia and the West
22 January 2020

Today, the traditional channels of international dialogue in politics and business are no longer fulfilling their objectives. Culture has always served as a stable mediator that has united politics, business and society in an international context. Today, cultural and charitable projects can provide both a platform for meetings and a means by which all parties can communicate on an equitable basis. How are international cultural projects helping to overcome the current stagnation, break the ice and promote international dialogue? Russia has always been a purveyor of important cultural events and is still considered a leader in many areas of classical art. What needs to be done today to preserve this heritage, continue the tradition and enhance the country’s standing in this area? How can we achieve a breakthrough in international cooperation in respect to cultural projects? What modern cultural trends have the potential to create new sustainable ties and create maximum value among all stakeholders? Can culture help restore good relations between Russia and the West as a whole? How can business stand to benefit? Will this be harmful to culture?
