In countries where art and heritage are the pillar and driving force of society, the soft power of culture makes a significant contribution to their economic growth and social development, and also serves as an effective tool for maintaining international dialogue and cooperation. Humanitarian collaboration, cultural exchanges, the ability to use a common and understandable language create a spiritual connection between different peoples and countries. How does culture affect a nation’s economic success? How does culture help shape and develop a more conscious society? How does culture become a connecting bridge in building international and interethnic relations? How can Russian culture enhance its influence globally and expand its presence on the world stage? What role does culture play in developing creativity and how what is the best way to build interaction between culture, economy, and business?
