Forum as a tool for promoting book reading

“As a member of the Republican Youth Council, I have attended such events in other cities several times and set about organising a forum in Nizhnekamsk. But I wanted to involve young people from the enterprises of the city. They have a busy schedule, they are always at work, I wanted to create such an atmosphere for them so that they could get acquainted, communicate, and, of course, enrich themselves with new knowledge," Olga Gudoshnikova, its organiser, tells about the origin of the idea of the KnigArt youth forum.

And the choice of topic was obvious.

“We, as a library, should promote book reading," she noted.

The grant helped to turn the idea into reality. The project of the youth forum became the winner of the grant competition of the Ministry of Youth Affairs of the Republic of Tatarstan.

TAIF-NK youth — winners

The first item in the extensive programme of the KnigArt forum was a meeting with Russian writer Bulat Khanov. Although the topic was “What young people read today”, the communication went far beyond the designated framework, turning out to be very informative and interesting.

Then the teams went on a team-building quest, which took place in the fresh air. The competitions not only united the team, but also gave the participants vivid emotions.

The next item of the programme was a master class on creating comics from writer Anatoly Ukhandeev, after which the participants were invited to create their own comics on the theme “The Mystery of the Old Book”. It was then that they were able to demonstrate all their creativity. And the experts of the forum recognised the TAIF-NK team as the best in this matter.

“You have touched upon such a topical topic today — alms. It seems to me that some kind of God's gift has descended on you. We approached the work very deeply, touched upon several educational moments at once," said Marina Minnegalieva, the chairman of the Nizhnekamsk city organisation of the Tatar Republican Organisation of the All-Russian Professional Union of Cultural Workers, handing the TAIF-NK team a well-deserved award.
