Interest in history, archeology, ethnography and mythology of the Far East of Russia united Ksenia Frolova and Roman Ivanishchev in Hero4Hero group to maintain the values of the cultural and spiritual heritage of the territory.

The main task of the group is to actualize the connection of the population with the cultural landscape through interdisciplinary projects that represent the territory's heritage by contemporary art language.

Since 2015, Hero4Hero has been working on a graphic novel about Gennady Ivanovich Nevelskoy, exploring the theme of the Sikhote-Alin meteorite in the MANNA project, the Primorye Territory as a living, filled with local meanings and at the same time substantive, tangible environment of human life in the Strata: Sanctuary project.

The favorite phrase: "Without those who remember, the landscape becomes silent." (Milana Ragulina. Doctor of Geographical Sciences).
