He was one of the founders of several juvenile cultural groups and organisations, such as Majstroŭnia (Майстроўня, 1979–1984), Tałaka (Талака, 1986–1989), and the Confederation of Belarusian Juvenile Organisations (Канфэдэрацыя беларускіх моладзевых суполак, 1988–1989).

In 2016 Vincuk Viačorka publishes the book “In Belarusian With Vincuk Viačorka”. This is a series of essays based on the eponymous Radio Liberty internet page program. Viačorka encourages his audiences to dissect the rules and principles of authentic Belarusian, a tongue which suffered serious distortion in the wake of Communist mandates on “language merger.” Vocabulary and onomastics, grammar and pronunciation, spelling and syntax are all covered in concise, easy to read lessons. Viačorka gives long overdue attention to a distinct and vibrant language which is an indivisible component of the modern European linguo-cultural space.
