In 1998, Naila, I. Babaes, E. Krjibitsky, and I. Lyapnev, together with members of the Association of Young Art Critics, established the Artkin Siege art group in Yekaterinburg to expand anti-feminist propaganda through the local art scene. Although the group has been active for a short time, it has focused on women's issues. In 2003, the Setkin siege group participated in the ArtKlyazma Festival. Architectural, dramatic, and musical creations were exhibited at the event.

She has been the director of Russia's first comprehensive public art program at the PERMM Museum of Modern Art since 2010. The goal of this public art program was to illustrate the active declaration of a cultural strategy during Perm's so-called "cultural revolution." As part of the PERMM Museum of Contemporary Art's vision, the program was performed in Perm from 2010 to 2014. Since 2014, Nailia Allakhverdieva has served as art head of the PERMM Museum of Modern Art. She is a recognized expert in integrating modern art with Russia's urban environment and public areas. Naila is a cultural manager who belongs to the Association of Cultural Managers.

She has been planning and producing public artworks since 1999. For her exhibition "The Face of the Bride: Contemporary Kazakh Art," she was given the title of Best Curator (The Sergey Kuryokhin Contemporary Art Awards) in 2013. The State Prize in modern art innovation was given to the Festival of Contemporary Art on Concrete Walls "Long Stories of Yekaterinburg'' in 2009.
