Zhivoy Gorod was founded in 2013 in Kazan by Diana Safarova, Artem Silkin and Inna Yarkova. It is a non-profit organization that seeks to develop contemporary art from the Republic of Tatarstan and create a new, relevant cultural space in partnership with leading artists and institutions from Russia and abroad.
Zhivoy Gorod has already produced several landmark projects that have become important events in the field of art not only in Kazan, but throughout Russia, firmly cementing Tatarstan on the cultural map of the country.
Today, the Foundation brings together many creative teams. Annually, with the support of a number of partners, we organize dozens of events in theatre, dance, visual arts, music, cinema and literature.
