Dear friends, colleagues and fellow-thinkers,
I am a creative person by vocation; that is why I have always had a desire to realize my potential as an artist and as a person committed to spirituality. In this regard, I appealed to President Nursultan Nazarbayev to relieve me of the post of Director of the Astana Opera House.
Head of State complied with the request, and I am sincerely and deeply grateful to him for that.
Now I can fully focus on my creative work and on the public work, to which I have devoted more than twenty years of my life.
I am talking about the Congress of Spiritual Concord and the World Forum of Spiritual Culture.
My Moscow colleagues at the International Association “Peace through Culture” did me proud of electing me Chairman. Accordingly, the headquarters of the Association will be transferred to Astana. We have already opened the office of the “Peace through Culture” Association. The permanent Secretariat of the WFSC will work on its base. We plan to significantly intensify the work of our website, and here we need your help. Through our website we intent to start a full-scale discussion on the date and venue of the Second World Forum of Spiritual Culture, its main topic and agenda, participants and many other issues. Your opinion is very important and valuable for us. Even today, the number of visitors of the WFSC website is 3 million. There should be much more of them!
We are waiting for news about your achievements and challenges, promoting and establishing the ideas and principles of Spiritual Culture in the World, news about activities of our organizations in different countries. We will expand our global community and attract new supporters and partners through the WFSC website.
Impulse given in Astana in 2010, should not fade away, and this requires hard everyday work in the name of Spiritual Culture. I promise you this and call upon all people, who share my beliefs, for it!
Co-Chairman of the World Forum of Spiritual Culture
