Can you have an expo about press freedom in Russia? – Traveling Expo part 3

Long time ago Thomas Loudon was a Keynote speaker at the Prochitashy Festival in Russia. We spoke about visual journalism and our philosophy: ‘There is more than one truth’. Afterwards we were asked to do an expo in Russia….

Together with the Russian Foundation for Independent Radio we managed to create a traveling expo of 50 alumunium panels about Press Freedom. It would travel from Moscow to Vladivostok in Russia.

But the duties for import were changed at the borders of Russia the month before… We were friendly asked to wire 20.000 euro’s to get the problem fixed. … Many letters were written to get it out….

We thought we ‘ve lost but 2 years later….. we received a message from the Russian Foundation for Independent Radio Broadcasting that the expo was a tremendous success…. No clue what happened…
