Chukotka for People Pavilion to Represent Its Region at EEF 2022

15 August 2022
Павильон «Чукотка для людей» представит округ на ВЭФ-2022

Chukotka Autonomous District will open a pavilion at the ‘Far East Street’ exhibition. The pavilion is called Chukotka for People. Guests and participants in the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok will learn about the region, its unique features, culture, way of life and traditions of Chukotka’s indigenous people and the region’s potential. The pavilion will also present regional priority projects and local products.

“The display is meant to create the atmosphere of harmony with the wild nature of the Arctic. We will also show the large investment projects implemented in our region. Chukotka’s pavilion is traditionally popular with exhibition guests, as it represents a unique region,” noted Chukotka Governor Roman Kopin.

The central part of the display will help its guests learn about Chukotka’s projects – the Bering Strait Festival, the Arctic Running half-marathon, Umka glamping base and other investment projects. An interactive map and a suspended screen will provide basic information about the projects to visitors. An interactive zone will introduce guests to the activities of the Baimskaya Mining Company and its achievements.

In its pavilion, the region will present the Nunalikhtak ethnic park project, which is being implemented in the village of Egvekinot. It is a one-of-a-kind reconstruction of a traditional settlement of Chukchi sea hunters from the 17–19th centuries, with traditional and household buildings. In addition, there will be an area for making traditional Yarangas, kayaks and sleds.

Opposite the main pavilion there will be a stage with performances by the state Chukchi and Eskimo ensemble Ergyron and the District House of Folk Art. An amphitheatre designed as a traditional boat of the peoples of the North will be set up for visitors. In the SME zone, everyone will be able to buy special souvenirs, gifts, as well as items of culture and everyday life of the indigenous peoples of Chukotka. In the eco-bar, guests of the pavilion will be treated to national specialties and authentic drinks.

Representatives of Coffee Kit, Chukotka’s only coffee shop franchise, will treat visitors to coffee and share their experience of business development in the harsh Arctic conditions. Specialists of Chukotka brand that have developed modern capsule collections of clothes and souvenirs with Chukchi themes will present a local style of clothes. A rare bone carving craft will be shown to guests by multi-award-winning craftsman Alexander Kilasov.

Chukotka will also talk about its unique natural monuments: the Lorinsky hot springs, Cape Vankarem and the Klyuchevoy nature sight. They will be the subject of an exhibition, designed with photographs of the scenery and videophones in ‘illuminators’ inside the wall. A Yaranga, the Chukchi national home, will also be seamlessly integrated into the architectural ensemble.

“Far East Street” exhibition will be open to visitors and participants of the 7th Eastern Economic Forum on the quay of the Ajax Bay at the campus territory of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) from 5 to 8 September. After the end of the Forum its work will last until 11 September. Entrance for residents and guests of Vladivostok and other cities is free. The Roscongress Foundation is the organizer.
