Strelka is a post-graduate institute dedicated to developing new perspectives on critical issues in contemporary Russia.
At its campus in Moscow, Strelka brings together architects, intellectuals, designers and media professionals in a relationship of creative interdisciplinarity. Each year, the institute’s researchers explore a selection of subjects of particular importance to Russian life – from the preservation of cities and the dispersal of populations to the future of energy and virtual space. At the end of each six-month research cycle, the Institute broadcasts its work in partnership with a network of publishing, television, web, mobile, and advertising organizations. Strelka operates as a non-profit, tuition-free foundation, independent of both state and free market pressures, providing a haven for inquiry and experimentation, and a crucial new platform for addressing Russian issues inside Russia and out.
