Murmansk is about to celebrate it’s 100 year anniversary. It has been a quarter century since the break-up of the Soviet Union. Yet, although the Soviet Union has dissipated 25 years ago, it’s legacy still lives on. There is a need to celebrate the future of the city, but without forgeting the ancestors.

The youth of thecity of Murmansk need a creative outlet. Unfortunately, there is no existing framework in place to support a youth center in Murmansk. This project proposes a new hierarchy to create room in the municipality of Murmansk and fund a space within a short timeframe.
The concept is to engage young artist and creatives of Murmansk in order to create an event-intervention at the Aliosha Monument to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of the city. The intervention involves the mapping of the city in fabric on the 35 meter tall Soldier.
