Quality training for restorers is essential to continue the restoration tradition. In January 2021, the educational project “Restoration Curatorium” of the Moscow City Heritage Site and the College “26 KADR” was launched. Senior students visit restoration workshops and storage facilities, listen to lectures on the intricacies of the craft, and, under the guidance of experienced specialists, participate in works on restoration objects and in volunteer activities. Since the fall of 2021, students from the Russian Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture of Ilya Glazunov have joined the project.
The Restorer School project allows children to gain initial knowledge about the main directions of restoration work and ways of preserving historical and cultural monuments, helps to solve the problem of choosing a future profession. Children learn to work with tools and materials, study the experience of craftsmen and get acquainted with the objects of the cultural heritage of the capital.
To assess the qualifications of restorers undergoing training in state vocational education institutions, new WorldSkills restoration competencies have been developed: “Restorer of woodwork” and “Restorer of painting”. Students from Moscow occupy the leading positions in the competition for restoration competencies.
In addition, since 2018, the Moscow City Heritage Board, in partnership with leading universities in the capital, has been holding the Heritage Forum. Over three years, more than 12 thousand people have become its participants. In 2021, more than 100 students from Moscow universities, as well as representatives of Kazan, Samara, Vladimir, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, St. Petersburg and the Republic of Crimea, are participating in the competition program.
The Moscow Department of Cultural Heritage annually holds a competition of the Moscow Government for the best project in the field of preservation and popularization of cultural heritage sites “Moscow Restoration”. Since 2016, prizes have been awarded in the Young Restorer nomination, which celebrates the successes of young professionals.
Today, there are more than eight thousand cultural heritage sites in the capital. Their careful preservation depends on the participation of the whole society, therefore, about 500 cultural heritage volunteers have joined the projects to preserve and popularize the monuments. In 2020, accompanied by representatives of the Moscow City Heritage Agency, volunteer cleaning trips were held on the territory of the estates. On an ongoing basis, work is carried out on preventive care of works of monumental and monumental-decorative art, perpetuating the memory of the events, participants, veterans and victims of the Great Patriotic War.
