Stenograffia travel to Ekaterinburg, Noyabrsk and Muravlenko

Since 2015 the festival created art projects in 10 Russian cities, from Saint Petersburg to the Tomsk in Siberia. We would like to tell you about our journey.


Let's start

In 2015, Native Cities, the program of social investments, joined the Stenograffia and since then the geography of the project has expanded. Our expositions we would like to present the art objects that were made in the amazing places of great Russia.
