Abstract. The current article highlights the scientific and promotional activities of Young Researchers Council of the Literature, Language and Art Criticism Department of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. This is, in particular, the YouTube project of the Council «Singing Rushnyks…» which started on January 7, 2021.

The relevance of popularizing the young researchers’ achievements in the broad media space is dictated by the trends of our modern world. It is not secret that it is clearly tending toward openness and rapid information-sharing. Today, the YouTube channel seems to be one of the most effective and accessible platforms for such activities. Accordingly, the coverage of these aspects in the review and analytical article is relevant. We hope that these materials will draw the attention of colleagues and connoisseurs of folk culture to the specific YouTube project (and in general to our YouTube channel), as well as encourage other researchers to create similar scientific and promotional online resources for further presentation of their achievements via them.

The research object is the YouTube project «Singing Rushnyks…» created by Young Researchers Council of the Literature, Language and Art Criticism Department of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The study topic is the specifics of this project content. To date, it includes the following videos: 1) «COME ON, COME ON, GRAY GOOSES (a Ukrainian folk song about love on towels)» / Towels-Singers; 2) «A FILLED WITH WATER BOAT IS FLOATING (a Ukrainian folk song on towels)» / Towels Singers; 3) «A SYCAMORE IS STANDING NEAR THE WATER (a Ukrainian folk Cossack song of literary origin)» / Towels-Singers. Additionally, in this article we will briefly mention the video presentation «SONG ABOUT MALANKA» / Folk Calendar. The last video, although not directly included in the «Towels-Singers» section, is still typologically close to the first three ones.
