I do notice that your social media information feeds are overwhelmed with the 12 months outcomes and nonetheless I wrote this. The photographs of pre-HNY St Petersburg and Moscow are included to ease the ache.
In the ultimate publish of 2018, I need to sum up not solely the outcomes of this 12 months however to say some factors from the final a number of years. As you’ve most likely observed, I haven’t blogged usually since 2017. I began this weblog again in 2013 once I was a contract translator. In 2015 I started working at a museum as a public relations specialist in worldwide communications leaving it two years later for a PR company (which was closed on the finish of 2017 so I moved to a different one – AGT). It was a transition from freelance to no free time. By the way in which, this weblog helped loads in getting yours actually employed.
The tasks in each companies have been associated – you guessed it – to Russia and Russian tradition particularly. Moreover, these tasks had a lot in frequent: they have been non-political* digital cross-cultural communication packages.
As apparent as it’s, I’ve seen that Russian tradition may be very engaging to the large worldwide viewers. It’s tougher to know this easy truth from Russia(n perspective) than by witnessing a foreigner’s reside response on-line or IRL. Presenting its finest manifestations overseas (Russian Seasons case) or exhibiting Russia instantly (through the Follow Up Siberia excursions) – the largely optimistic suggestions proves as soon as once more that the demand for Russian tradition in its excessive, well-liked and on a regular basis kinds in several components of the world is actually enormous and isn’t going anyplace.
I’ve additionally met many excellent folks from all around the globe (Russia included!) – sports activities, journey and life-style bloggers, musicians, singers, athletes, journalists, writers, PR gurus, and so on., and even grew to become pals with a few of them.
I need to finish this publish with a easy message: don’t hate, talk!
С Новым годом!
*Although the phenomenon of Russomania leaves no place for a doubt that some would possibly say that ‘Russia weaponizes artwork and tradition’.
