We have created a Cultural Center, which is an object of social entrepreneurship, on the initiative of the friends of our volunteer community. It is a unique memorial place where the famous Museum-Estate of the great artist Nicholas Roerich is located. We are working on improvement of this place, helping the Museum and the rural settlement to create a harmonious environment. We plan to establish permanent volunteer shifts in the centre, attracting young people and students here. Our Cultural Center includes an Art Cafe of Russian and Indian cuisine, a book and souvenir Salon, a Lada Exhibition and a Concert Hall, Oleg Vysotsky's Gallery of Cosmism Art, a social educational Center for children and youth, a headquarters of the Friends of our volunteer community
