In 2020, the Open Lectures pursued a main theme that focused on the development of societies and technology, and the change that the latter brought to all spheres of life and creativity. The various event formats included discussions, lectures, public talks and battles on cultural topics.

Experts from different countries will discuss the influence of technological progress on development of music culture, in particular, electronic music, and will present their unique projects. Representatives of the museum community will talk about the changing priorities in their work, and the consequences of museums trying to attract larger audiences by becoming accessible recreation venues. Together with the invited participants we will discuss the phenomenon of modern culture, ways of creative self-expression, characteristic for representatives of the new generation, digital technologies, and their influence on arts. We will also try to predict future scenarios of cultural development.
