In 2022, the main focus of discussion at the Congress was the cooperation and consolidation of all stakeholders' efforts to achieve Russia's aggregate sovereignty.
Natalia Popova, First Deputy General Director of Innopraktika, Andrey Serov, General Director of ANO Mediapraktika, Evgeny Primakov, Head of Rossotrudnichestvo, Boris Khanchalian, Deputy General Director of Gazprom-Media Entertainment TV, Vasily Noskov, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth of Luhansk People's Republic, and others participated in the Congress.
Alexei Lebedev, director of Russian Seasons, took part in the round table: "Media space as a field of competition between deep values and counterculture". The main topic of discussion was global values and the need to use all media opportunities (shows, educational projects, social media) to bring traditional values to a larger audience.
The School of Innopraktika and Russian Seasons meets this mission, receiving more and more requests each year from international students to participate in educational sessions, which proves a commitment to global values. In 2022, three art sessions were held, two of which took place in the Republic of Senegal and the Luhansk People's Republic. For 2023, the project aims to organize new sessions, which will, as always, include international students and students from the Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics.
This year, the series "Fall in Love with Russia in 30 Days" was filmed based on the School's choreographic session. It shows how foreign dancers and choreographers from all over the world are getting to know Russia and preparing to conquer St. Petersburg's main theater scene as part of the Innopraktika and Russian Seasons School. The students have only 30 days to prepare productions with the Boris Eifman Academy of Dance instructors and go on stage at the Alexandrinsky Theater.
The same goal is pursued by another project introduced during the Congress - the sports-intellectual show "Challenge," hosted by Natalia Popova, first deputy general director of the Innopraktika non-state development institute, and Dmitry Guberniev, MATCH TV commentator.
