The Museum guests can watch videos, participate in different socially-oriented interviews and discussions and share their knowledge about the traditions of different cultures.
The Center offers original series of lectures and master-classes which cover all areas of focus of the Museum and its Centers – Avant-Garde, Tolerance, Research, and Children’s Center. Themed movie screenings, meet-the-artist sessions and discussions with prominent representatives of the cultural society are regularly held here.
