The development of museums is one of the priorities of the Vladimir Potanin Foundation (hereinafter, the "Foundation") and an important part of its strategy to form a community of creative professionals and to consolidate their efforts in solving current public issues.

The Museums Without Borders charity program (hereinafter, the "Program") aims to further the Foundation's efforts to support professionals and organizations that can make museums a modern open public institution, a center for education and innovations while also giving additional impetus to the socio-economic development of territories.

We bring together those who are willing to go beyond the usual formats of museum activity, make their own decisions, develop cross-sector cooperation, and ensure the sustainability of outcomes. The joint initiatives of the Program participants are based on common principles and values. We create conditions for unlocking their creativity, developing creative thinking, expanding the possibilities of professional fulfillment and building of partnerships, searching, spreading, and scaling of successful experience.

The Program is based on the Foundation's partnership with grantees, volunteers, and Russian and international museum, cultural, and nonprofit communities.
