Novosibirsk Public Kondtratiuk Foundation is a non-profit non-governmental organization that has been working in the field of contemporary arts for eight years. Starting as an informal association of innovative artists, the foundation, with support from Open Society Institute (Soros Foundation) and Ford Foundation, grew into a major clearing house and resource center for cutting edge arts and culture in Novosibirsk and Western Siberia. The Kondratiuk Foundation’s modus operandi is fostering cultural paradigm shift towards independent and alternative practices through access to in-house technical and expert resources and artistic residencies for innovative practitioners.
