Moscow has always had a reputation both for its vibrant cultural scene and its chaotic pace of living. Over the last several years, however, infrastructure developments and cultural initiatives have made it much more livable for residents and visitors alike. Sergei Kapkov has been the visionary behind this change. He will share his concept of urban development in Russia, discuss life in Moscow and beyond, and reflect on what makes Russian cities different from European and American ones. 




  • Sergei Kapkov

    Former Minister of Culture of the Moscow city government; Head of the Culture and Urban Development Center, School of Economics, Moscow State University
