It is advisable to show a general view of the area and individual details of the landscape design and, of course, the people. Each member of the settlement may also be presented on in the film; the duration of each individual presentation should be no more than 3 or 4 minutes. Conference participants who do not live on a kin’s domain may also send their presentation. Recommendations: film using a tripod, pay special attention to the sound, choose a house or a festival as the background for an individual shot. If problems arise in hiring a qualified video operator, you can produce a photo report, but be sure to put it on a disk with accompanying text.
The organizing committee of the conference will invite professional interpreters to Turkish, English, German and Russian for a synchronized translation of Vladimir Megre’s presentation. However, we cannot guarantee that we can provide interpreters for individual personal interactions, so we suggest that groups consisting of individual settlements should select an interpreter from among their participants.
During the entire period, a mail service and information-inquiry service will be operating, through which you will be able to contact any conference participant of interest. In the event you wish to submit your hand-made articles for exhibit, you must inform us prior to 15 September 2008 by e-mail which is listed below.
The schedule of events has been considered put together by us based on financial resources. If you have any suggestions or comments that are within our means, we are prepared to listen to and discuss them.
