Alongside the visible changes of everyday events, there is something that is often overlooked in public discussion. Long-term cycles, complex phenomena, and large-scale processes radically change our lives via barely noticeable shifts in the world. What lies beyond the horizon of our immediate notice, and what visual aids do we need to see it? What do we know about Russia, and how is that knowledge possible?

Since one person cannot simultaneously look to either side, at the road under his feet and straight ahead, Strelka is bringing together people with different views, expertise and interests.

Four speakers will have a quarter of an hour each to lay out their point of view at before the audience asks four questions.

Four quarters is a discussion of those things we need to have in view today, if we are to be ready for the day after tomorrow.
