The Novotroitsk Children's Arts School has been opened after renovation work, funded by Metalloinvest as part of its socio-economic partnership with the governments of the Orenburg region and Novotroitsk. Metalloinvest provided over 67 mn roubles to this project.

Yury Berg commented: "Cultural development is a priority area of state policy. In the Orenburg region, both governing bodies and companies devote particular attention to this issue. Today's event is a direct confirmation of this. Opening this newly modernised Arts School is a significant event both for the people of Novotroitsk and for the entire region. On behalf of the people of the Orenburg region, I would like to express my gratitude to Metalloinvest for its support and participation in this project."
Andrey Varichev added: "Our lives cannot be fulfilled without engaging with the arts. The renovated arts school is a gift to future generations, to our children, who have gained the opportunity to learn in the best conditions, with wonderful new equipment. I am sure that genuinely great artistic talents will be developed within the four walls of the school."
The school's modern classrooms have been equipped for individual classes and theoretical study, and a musical performance section with acoustic sound insulation, a concert hall for small productions, and a large 250-seat concert hall have been installed. Musical instruments have been acquired with funds from Metalloinvest and Alisher Usmanov's Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation.
