Description

The St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum annually attracts thousands of experts in the field of culture from all over the world: starts of theater, opera and ballet, renowned directors and musicians, public figures, representatives of authorities and business and academic communities. The Forum was organized by the Government of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Russian Federation. The mission of the Forum is to form the key vectors of the development of culture as a progressive force that brings the constructive origin into life of our country and of the world community as a whole.

The Forum is developing in three directions at the same time. A large-scale business programme will be of interest to specialists in different areas of culture. The festival programme includes multiple cultural events for city residents and guests of St. Petersburg. The business platform creates conditions for implementing projects and signing agreements in the field of culture. Year after year, the Forum has been expanding the number of events and the number of experts and guests at the highest level.

This year there will be a large-scale professional and public flow programme, with a number of Russian and international premieres of shows, concerts, exhibitions and many other events for various audiences. Guest countries of the VII St. Petersburg International Cultural Forum will present their business and cultural programmes and various theme programmes, such as the Festival of Festivals.

During the Forum, the National Library of Russia is organizing the symposium "Information. Society. Development: international ties of the libraries". Cooperation issues, joint project activities, and the role of libraries in international cultural exchange will be among the major discussion topics at this Symposium.
