The theme of the festival is to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Volgograd and Coventry becoming twin cities, which laid the foundation of the global twin cities movement. Artists from 11 countries presented works of art created in the artist-in-residence "Creation of the Mir", which began to work a week before the festival. The dream of many Volgograd citizens, the artist Victor Losev and architect Efim Levitan came true. The Mira Street became a pedestrian street. Also the event was joined by the Volzhsky city, where the artists went to the most beautiful and romantic Fountain Street to paint the city and passers-by. More than 12 thousand Volgograd citizens and guests took part in the festival events.
