Within the project “Vestnik Velimira” [Velimir’s bulletin] the winner of the “Museum tour-guide” Contest organized by Vladimir Potanin Foundation in the nomination “Amazing Museums Of Russia” the Velimir Khlebnikov House-Museum is widely advertised in the Internet network. The Velimir Khlebnikov House-Museum had logged on to “VKontakte” social media much earlier than other Astrakhan museums did and for many years it has been supportive of the dialogue with the audience. That is why this very social network was chosen as a place for our first photo contest. The topic is “Inside the circle of readers. KHLEBNIKOV.”
