For the fourth time New Acropolis volunteers from Ekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk, Izhevsk, Perm took part in an expedition to Visim natural park, in the context of a developing ecological tourism project consisting in constructing three ecological trails made of wooden decking. Thanks to these constructions tourists will have the opportunity to enjoy nature without perturbing or damaging it.

During an entire week, aside from building trails as a team, classes and practices took place dedicated to survival in the wild: medical first aid, exterior location orientation, making fire, and using creativity with alternative uses of  everyday objects.

Touching the Beauty projec

After two months of preparations the exhibition of sculptural replicas created for blind persons  “Gods and heroes of Ancient Greece” opened in Moscow. This exhibition is part of the program “Touching Beauty”.

The event was accompanied by theatrical and musical performances dedicated to Ancient Greece which blind children had prepared together with their teachers.

We had not expected that such an event could be so helpful for blind children, who made so many discoveries, and expressed their delight and creativity. This collaboration with the School will continue, and the next exhibition will be dedicated to ancient Egypt.

We are very grateful to all the volunteers who took part in creating this exhibition and hope to meet again at our future projects and other New Acropolis events.

A musical evening took place with a focus on ‘Russian music of the nineteenth century: Coming back to the roots’ within the framework of the lecture series ‘The Art of listening to music’.

When did Russian music appear? Until the 19th century there were two disconnected worlds: folk music and Church hymns. Musicians such as Dmitry Bortniansky, Alexander Alyabyev, Mikhail Glinka, marked the beginning of a journey of Russian music, overcoming the abyss between these two polarities.
