Fourteen people of culture awarded on National Day of Culture

Fourteen people of culture who distinguished themselves by their works last year were awarded at the 2018 Culture Awards Gala on January 15, which was staged on the occasion of the National Culture Day, IPN reports.

Attending the event, Prime Minister Pavel Filip said the National Day of Culture that is celebrated on the birthday of the great poet Mihai Eminescu is an occasion for pondering over the cultural phenomenon in Moldova and for transmitting a message of gratitude, appreciation and encouragement to all the creators of beauty. The executive will continue to make effort to improve the working conditions and salaries of those who work in the field.

Minister of Education, Culture and Research Monica Babuc noted that the kindness depicted in Eminescu’s poems is increasingly absent in people. “The larger is the number of new gadgets, the lesser is the kindness in humans. To supplement it, we should probably examine deeper the solitary poet’s works and the works of all the people of culture who bring kindness into our lives,” stated the minister.

The Constantin Stere Award in ex-equo literature went to writer, poet and dramatist Dumitru Crudu; the Emil Loteanu Award in cinematography to film director Violeta Gorgos; the Spiridon Mocanu Award in choreography to the manager of the folk dances ensemble “Codrenii” of Calarasi Grigore Radu; the Stefan Ciobanu Award in cultural heritage preservation and museography to the director of the district museum of history and ethnography of Teleensti Elena Iliescu; the Ion Madan Award in bibliotechonomy and bibliography to the director of the Jewish Library, Cultural Center “Itsic Mangher” of the Municipal Library “B.P. Hasdeu” Ana Batmanova

Awards were also handed over to: folk music singer and People’s Artist Mihai Ciobanu – the Isidor Burdin Award in intangible heritage; musical programs moderator at “Teleradio Moldova” Company Natalia Moraru – the Gheorghe Cincilei Award for the promotion of the cultural image through the mass media; director of the National Center for the Conservation and Promotion of the Intangible Cultural Heritage Diana Dicusary – the Alexandru Fetco Award for the best manager in the field of culture; plastic artist Emil Childescu - the Mihai Grecu Award in plastic arts; members of the folk songs and dances ensemble “Fluieras” Edgar, Marcel and Veaceslav Stefanet – the Gavriil Muzicescu Award in music; actor of the National Theater “Mihai Eminescu” Gennady Gilca – the Valeriu Cupcea Award in ex-equo performing arts, and actress and stage manager of the Theater “Geneza Art” Daniela Burlaca – the Valeriu Cupcea Award in ex-equo performing arts.
