The project offers three main interlocking or even merging cycles of events: literature, art and music, and one large joint event covering many different arts and activities, actively involving creators and community members.

The literature cycle will include literary commemorations; meetings with writers of the Panevėžys region, who are well-known in Lithuania and in the world. The art cycle will include professional personal painting exhibitions and photography exhibitions. The music cycle will invite famous performers of classical and popular music of Panevėžys region. The project will be crowned by the closing event dedicated to the memory of the world-famous artist Jonas Mekas from Biržai.
