This article is devoted to the issue of promoting strong local cultural brands in the art market by means of additional education programs. Globalization, increased competition in the global market, high economic and political risks, and development and implementation of strong cultural brands strategy provide opportunities to improve global competitiveness of local destinations. However, the art market in Russia is underdeveloped. Thus, it requires additional education programs. Social marketing education programs, aimed at the promotion and development of the Russian art market, are in fact being implemented. According to foreign examples, the development of the art market (in terms of image) is worthwhile for the state. However, the lack of information and understanding about the transactions in the art market contribute to a low economic level of investment in this area in Russia. Therefore, we cannot significantly influence the cultural brand of the territory. The authors offer a model for positioning additional education programs to break through in the art market, which can help to identify effective promotion strategies and significantly improve the effect of state support for such programs. This model can help local decisionmakers avoid the high risks that come with implementing additional education programs. The authors of the work studied the positioning of additional education programs in the framework of the art market based on a modified Cagan-Vogel matrix. In addition, typical examples of programs from various areas are examined to identify the advantages of these programs that successfully influence the development of the art market and how they strengthen the cultural brand of their territory.
