On 2 and 3 September, the first House of Hearts charity festival will be taking place on Moscow in support of the Naked Heart Foundation. The two-day inclusive art project will be held right in the city centre at the Shchusev Museum of Architecture.
The main trends of modern culture, such as – music, literature, theater, architecture, fashion and science – will be presented at the Festival. The concept of empathy constituted the Festival’s keynote idea. The Festival’s coordinators will reflect on this topic, as well as everything related to it: respect, tolerance, openness and readiness for dialogue. Thus, the Festival will allow everyone to contribute to the development of an inclusive society, which is open to people with disabilities and special needs.
All the funds raised through the event will go towards the development of projects relating to inclusive education for children with special needs: autism, Down syndrome, mental retardation and others.
