We invite you to the international forum CHRNBL, October 6 to 10
Unique technologies, more than 50 speakers from 15 countries and an interactive exhibition with virtual works of famous Ukrainian painters Ivan Marchuk, Maria Prymachenko, and Arsen Savadov – a new innovative format of an international event based on the mobile application CHRNBL!
Over 5 days of the CHRNBL international forum, more than 50 experts from 15 countries will talk about the impact of Chernobyl on humanity. Scientists, liquidators, representatives of state and cultural organizations will speak about the cultural rethinking of Chernobyl, the silence, fakes and disclosure of classified USSR documents, and the possibilities of modern technology to preserve our history. They will talk about the problems of reintegration of victims and liquidators into society and current scientific projects of Chernobyl.
Thanks to the online format, CHRNBL forum events can be seen worldwide, so you can hear the opinions of recognized experts and even ask them questions. The forum will be broadcast in Ukrainian and English on the CHRNBL.com website, and questions can be asked simply in the comments during the online broadcast on CHRNBL social networks.
Each of the five days of the forum, from October 6 to 10, will be dedicated to its topic:
- 6.10. 2021 / 12: 00 – 17: 00 /
Rethinking the cultural heritage of national traumatic events.

The strategy of reintegration into society for liquidators and victims of the Chernobyl accident.
The Chernobyl facilities in the Exclusion Zone, previously scanned by the mobile application developers, have now become the exhibits of the first CHRNBL interactive exhibition, which will be presented simultaneously in 11 countries during the international forum.
Thanks to the unique AR technology of animated cards, 3D models and portals 360, the forum participants will be able to visit Chernobyl – virtually, just from their smartphone and look at its current state. Virtual copies of famous objects – such as the Ferris Wheel, Polissya Hotel, the Sarcophagus (ARC), Azure Pool, and exhibits of the Chornobyl National Museum – come to life on posters thanks to the CHRNBL mobile app. They can be examined in detail and meticulously studied together with declassified KGB documents.
In addition to truthful information about the history and modernity of Chernobyl, the exhibition will also introduce contemporary art objects. Among the exhibits are virtual works by Maria Primachenko, Ivan Marchuk, Arsen Savadov, Alevtina Kakhidze and other artists, which were presented as part of the first virtual exhibition of Chernobyl ARTEFACT.
"The CHRNBL mobile application was created with the support of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation as the central information hub of Chernobyl, with truthful information. In collaboration with international organizations, experts, scientists, and cultural figures, its goal is to gather the most valuable information about Chernobyl and broadcast it to the whole world.
In turn, the CHRNBL forum is launching an international communication platform to study the environmental, sustainability, media literacy, social, cultural and economic issues that humanity may face – to reduce the scale of their negative consequences. While the interactive exhibition expands the experience of researchers and increases the circle of people interested in Chernobyl, providing information in a modern format" – comments Svitlana Korshunova, curator of the international forum and co-founder of the mobile application CHRNBL.
The project is supported by the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation and with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, the National Museum of Chornobyl, NGO "Center PRYPYAT.com", NGO "European Institute of Chernobyl".
