Promoting identity across different civic constituencies
The project presents a network of “real virtuality” centers in small towns across Russia including Sortavala near the border with Finland, in an effort to put them on the map. The connection “Points” are multipurpose buildings equipped with modern communications technology, providing the possibility of video-conferences, spreading music from a concert hall into the streets, holding meetings or lectures, etc. It involves people in real communication by virtual interaction with its own citizens and with inhabitants of other towns.
By participating in this network, small towns will raise awareness of their own values and reinforce the identity of their citizens.
