The event will take place from June 13 to 16 at the Museum of Moscow. The program includes a series of activities and events highlighting cultural and artistic styles, including film screening, and cultural and musical performances.
Activities in line with the body’s role of providing a deeper understanding of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through cultural and artistic engagements are a part of the organization's continued contributions to promote global cultural exchange.

During the expo, the authority will also present a model for Saudi creative talents in the fields of culture and arts, and provide a promising outlook for these areas in the Kingdom in line with the objectives of the Kingdom's Vision 2030, which seeks to promote and support components of a creative society.

Short films to be played at the event will highlight the growth of a creative community in the Kingdom, including filmmakers in Saudi Arabia.
