The series will focus on various aspects of the creative process. Representatives of the creative industries and different artistic genres will talk about intellectual and practical challenges facing contemporary artists.  The discussion will center around the dynamically changing cultural matter, which serves simultaneously as a source of inspiration, an artistic medium and an organic experimental (and experienced) territory.
