The forum was organized by the National Academy of Manas, which, among other things, is engaged in the study and popularization of the world’s greatest Kyrgyz epic of the same name.

– For all those who are not indifferent, this is an important and long-awaited event. The main topics of discussion are the definition of the narrator’s status as the main source of the epic heritage, the designation of his role in the modern world, the preservation and study of the narrative phenomenon, the academy said.

The event was held in the free dialogue format. As the Secretary of State of the Kyrgyz Republic, Suyunbek Kasmambetov, noted, people participated who will later spread the information around the world that the first such forum was held in Kyrgyzstan.

– We must glorify the epics “Manas”, “Semetey”, “Seitek” and many others in different countries, – emphasized Suyunbek Kasmambetov.

– Storytellers of all ages have played an important role in preserving the spiritual and cultural identity of peoples. The epic is the source of the national spirit. Its live performance today is of enduring interest, especially in the context of globalization under the onslaught of mass culture, when small nations risk losing their spiritual heritage. Today’s modern world faces a difficult choice, new challenges and risks. Total marginalization and spiritual stagnation threaten to demolish everything in its path. In such circumstances, the dialogue of the storytellers at the international level inspires the hope that bakshi, dastanchi, zhangarchi, kaichi, manaschi, olonkhosuts, toolchu, uligershins, haiji and the like will serve as a beacon, as they have at all times, the added the academy.
