The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin met with Tatarstan
bloggers. The head of the city got acquainted with the projects aimed at the
development of the republic and its capital. The meeting with opinion leaders
took place in the building of the former shoe factory, and now the modern
creative location “Spartak Space”.
The Mayor of the city noted that the authorities are
already cooperating with bloggers. “I am glad that there are such active people
in Kazan. You are doing an important thing without any support. Let's continue our
cooperation: the city is big, there are a lot of issues. We have the same goal
– to make people's lives better. And you are already changing it, making it
more interesting with the help of your content, our tasks are a little wider.
Let's do it together. With your help will establish feedback with the
population”, - the mayor suggested.
The meeting began with a tour of the creative site.
The Mayor was shown all seven existing studios, the largest Kazan cyclorama, a
lecture hall and a coworking. As Ilsur Metshin was told, it is here that many
well-known bloggers work on their projects and create.
The acquaintance with the bloggers continued at the
lecture hall area. The activists told the Mayor about their implemented
projects. Many of them are aimed at the development of Kazan and the republic.
For example, Artyom Gorlanov creates photos and videos for the Beautiful
Tatarstan project, in which he tells about the unknown places of the republic.
Ilsur Metshin asked if there is a video about Kazan among his videos, and
offered to tell Tatarstan residents about places remote from tourist centers.
Then the Mayor of the city was acquainted with a video
guide “Stories of Tatarstan” – bloggers, athletes, government representatives
tell interesting stories about the republic. The founders of the project noted
that they would like to launch a series of similar videos about Kazan. Another
idea, which was told to the Mayor, is related to the Tatars of the World
project. It unites the Tatar people from all over the world in social networks
with the help of entertaining and informative content. Ilsur Metshin, in turn,
noted that he had an idea to shoot 3D Tatar performances and distribute them
through the project sites.
Other bloggers also told about their projects, among
them tik-toker Aliya Magdeeva, correspondents of the YouTube project TatarstanDa,
Tatar-speaking bloggers Ilnaz Gabidullin and Rinat Galiakhmetov and others.
The Mayor noted that the meeting was very positive and
reminded that they have a great responsibility, because thousands of people
listen to their opinion.
According to Ilsur Metshin, he is waiting for the
initiative from bloggers and is ready to consider any ideas together with the
heads of districts and divisions of the Executive Committee. “Let's meet more
often. Let's make Kazan the best city on Earth. We are already on the way to
this. Kazan is getting better, including through your work”, - the Mayor
