At the opening ceremony he will tell the audience about his work.
- Fashion shows from Russian designers from all around the country. This is an opportunity for young fashion designers to present their works to a wide audience.
- A concert programme featuring performances by artists from the participating cities.
- The festival will feature a collective performance entitled A kaleidoscope of folk crafts. A special entertainment zone will be organized with huge kaleidoscopes for public use. The typical pictures appearing inside the kaleidoscopes will be formed of traditional Russian ornaments such as Gzel, Zhostovo, Palekh and other ornamental schools.
- A joint campaign with the Moscovsky Metropoliten is planned: a large-scale installation forming the word ‘Troika’ will be crafted out of used public transport tickets. Its aim is to demonstrate the number of tickets used of every day at every station.
- A craft fair where visitors will have a chance to see and buy craftworks from Russian manufacturers. Apart from the traditional ornaments there will be artworks from less famous or tiny manufacturing companies who, in their turn, often distinguish themselves with unique techniques and interesting modern designs.
