The Museum by name of Nicholas Roerich in Moscow, Russia
The International Council of Roerich
Organizations by name of S.N. Roerich is a cultural, public and independent historically formed
union of creative forces inspired by the Roerich movement. It recognizes
the uniting role played by the International
Centre - Museum of Nicholas Roerich, known to all as the ICR, created
on the initiative of S.N.Roerich to remain for ever its Honourary
President. The International Council of Roerich Organizations by name of
S.N. Roerich (Council)
was founded in 1991 at the crucial moment when the Soviet Roerichs
Foundation was fiercely attacked by those who strove to seize and divide
the Roerich heritage. But it was Svyatoslav Roerich's strong belief that
the Roerich heritage must be left indivisible. The Council considers that
the main aim of its activity is to carry out the behest of S.N.Roerich to
defend and support the ICR thoroughly in its museum, cultural, scientific
and organizational work to protect, investigate and popularize the Roerich
heritage. During the ten-year period of its functioning the Council has
undergone many changes in its personnel but the main aim and principles of
the work remained steadfast: - to protect the name and the heritage of the
Roerichs against perversion, falsehood and slander; - to assist and
support the ICR as the central focus of Roerich movement. At the
International Symposium held on June 22, 2002 Roerich organizations came
together to study the appeal of S.N.Roerich to Roerich organizations and
to determine their activity by uniting all into the International
Co-Operation of Roerich Organizations. On February 12, 2003 they adopted a
Declaration of Roerich Organizations and signed an International Agreement.
The Council strengthens and extends international cultural co-operation on
the basis of unity and dialogue of enthusiasts across all earthly borders.
The International Council of Roerich Organizations invites all who share
our vision to co-operate with the Council in its endeavour to promote the
Roerich ideal to an ever-growing global community.
