For the first time, the forum is being held in a hybrid format: foreign participants of the Forum, including photographer Chris de Bode, Polish journalist Michal Szymko, Argentinian travel blogger Manuel Guijarrubia performed at the Hermitage Theater. But this is not the last innovation. Blogs, vlogs, TikTok today are the most relevant topics for discussion.
The Forum was attended by tiktokers – fifth-graders from Zadonsk Sofia Domornikova and Yegor Fedorov. The idea of their project - video walks in the hometown of the children - was suggested to them by the secretary of the Russian Union of Journalists Ashot Dzhazoyan. "Digital Cossacks," as he called them, said that they wanted to shoot a video in the Hermitage. It would be about the hero of the war of 1812 Luka Alekseevich Denisyev, who was buried in Zadonsk.
