We held a first meeting in 2019, and those days we have gathered here, at the Siberian Historical Forum. I am glad that, once a year, Krasnoyarsk Territory becomes a centre of attraction for everyone who is interested in our agenda. This section appeared to be a full-fledged dialogue which was very important for scientists. All participants noted the high level of the forum.”
Head of the Centre for the Study of Siberian Art of Siberian State Academy of Arts, Candidate of Art History, Associate Professor Maria Chikhacheva expressed her gratitude to the organizers of the forum for the opportunity to hold section Siberian Meridian of Culture and Art: Traditions and Modernity: “We had a very productive and interesting discussion Our section brought together 30 participants from Krasnoyarsk Territory, Khabarovsk, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok, and professionals from Kyrgyzstan and China. As a result our work, the participants came to the conclusion that at present it is very important to have administrative support for an integrated approach to preserving the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the region, as it contributes to the development of culture as a whole.”

The results of the VIII Siberian Historical Forum were summed up by the Deputy Governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Vasily Nelyubin: “The Siberian Historical Forum has turned out to be a rather noticeable event not only for the residents of Krasnoyarsk Territory, but for the whole Russia. This is a very important humanitarian event, and positive vibes are spreading throughout the country. I believe that in the future we should do more projects for young people: these are, for example, computer games related to the history of the region, and a YouTube channel where historical facts will be presented in an interesting format. Of course, we will support and encourage such initiatives. I congratulate you on the completion of the Siberian Historical Forum which was highly appreciated by the scientific community. It is worth voicing the position of head of the region, Alexander Uss, who believes that it is necessary to develop the humanitarian field in Krasnoyarsk Territory. I am sure that future forums will be even more interesting, meaningful and productive.”
