The plenary session is devoted to discussing the issue of how festivals in different countries of the world have passed and are going through a difficult time of a pandemic. How do they find different ways to get out of a difficult situation?

Festivals are Leaders in the Creative Solutions Industry for Academic Arts:

  • Recognition of the unifying power of art;
