The Urban Art Area 3 project is also accompanied by a series of Urban Art School, i.e. meetings with the most interesting artists and experts, during which it is possible not only to take part in panel discussions, but also to watch specially prepared documentaries and animations. There is also a Creative Zone, where visitors can learn the secrets of painting large-format murals, cutting out stencils and stickers and try their hand at it under the guidance of the artists who create them on a daily basis

An Urban Concept Store has been set up in the foyer of the exhibition, stocked by almost all Urban Art Area 3 artists and featuring custom clothing, collector’s merch and archive and premiere publications
