Nowadays it is not easy to invent a new tradition. Modern conditions demand new approaches and the 1980s, in Estonia, a new ideology, ethno-futurism, appeared. it was an avant-garde movement that offered a bridge between the past and future of contemporary ethnic culture. The notion defines “ethno” as indigenous, authentic, and prehistoric; and “futurism” as cosmo-politan and urban. very soon this idea extended across boundaries of this country and reached the Udmurts. Just at this time, in Udmurtia (Russia), some young artists, writers, journalists, and scientists wished to create something very new in a changing world. they wanted to maintain and develop ethnicity and ethnic culture within the context of globalisation. Udmurtia became a symbolic centre of ethno-futurism. it was necessary to bring this ideology to all others and make it attractive. In a short time, megaproject organizers focused on creating ethno-futuristic festivals (it organized eleven festivals); the next step turned into a new megaproject (it conducted five symposia) in recent years. This year, a new project on video-art has started.the new ideology “took up residence” in the conscious mind and the ritual calendar was enriched by new ethno-futuristic events.
