Culture plays an important role in the sphere of territorial development. Over the past several decades the socio-cultural design has become one of the most effective instruments on the path of evolution of territories. New times, meanwhile, dictate new challenges. The agenda of the post-industrial society includes highly complex issues that require unconventional knowledge and skills at the intersection of various types of human activity. Specialists and managers who shape the ideology and programs of sociocultural activities across Russian regions, increasingly more often demand a new professional development model that correspond to the needs of our time. Today we must not only professionally transfer knowledge but also transform it into various systems for use by agents of socio-cultural activities. We must also shape the experience of communication and effective interaction at the regional level among all participants of the professional community on the particular territory. The participants will use the example of the ART-OKNO Cultural Platform (Project of Alisher Usmanov's "Art, Science and Sport" Charity Foundation) to discuss apporaches to training and development of specialists in the sphere of culture across Russian regions.
