The symposium will be held on July 18–28 in the Republic of Bashkortostan (Russian Federation) and is aimed at updating traditional types of fine art and popularising the project of creating an Eurasian Museum of Nomadic Civilisations.

The symposium will be held at the cultural heritage base Mausoleum of Tura Khan and at the Shulgan-Tash Cave Historical and Cultural Museum-Reserve, which are considered major centres of attraction for professional artists working on ethnic and folklore themes.
