A modern museum is not just a venue, where pieces of art are archived and researched, but a multicultural centre, an experimental, educational and player space in a constant dialogue with the audience. At the Forum the status and the place of a museum in modern culture are defined by the Section "Museums and Exhibition Projects", which is traditionally one of the most large-scale ones.

How can the traditional circus be combined with the new circus? How can great skill live together with the language of contemporary art, guide and train current and future performers? Recognized experts — from highly awarded teachers to legendary clowns — annually meet at the Forum to share the best achievements and outline the further way of development for the art of circus in various genres.
Theorists and practitioners of theatre arts from various countries shared their experience of working on intercultural projects, spoke about a uniform information space, discussed particular national features of various theatre cultures and global tendencies in development of the global theatre.
The intellectual, spiritual and socio-cultural potential of the country depend on the quality of education. The main goal of the section is to create a special place for discussing education issues in general and issues of culture in particular.
